BookExpo America At L.A. Convention Center

Many events are happening in Los Angeles and one of them is the BookExpo America at the Los Angeles Convention Center. The expo takes place May 29 - June 1, 2008.

For three days you will have the opportunity to soak yourself in books, book sellers, buyers, educational events and the ability to network with potential employers. This is just a sampling:

Breakfast with the Authors, one that I wish I could attend would be with Mike Mignola,the author of Hellboy and Art Spiegelman, the author of the acclaimed graphic novel, Maus.

Special pavilions focusing on books for children, graphic novels, African-Americans, Latinos and Independent publishers.

Educational Panels feature topics on looking at Environmental Trends in Book Publishing, What Americas Latino Voices are Reading And Why, What Retailers & Librarians Should Know about Video Games and Gamers, New Technologies and New Literacies for Teens, Obscene in the Extreme: Why Books Still Get Banned and more.

Now it might happen that you can't attend the event this year but fear not, through the magic of BEA Audio Podcasting you can listen to last years events and panels. You can listen to them online or download to your media player:
