Day Two at the Book Expo America Convention

Another day of interesting conversations and amazing authors. Is'nt that what the book business is really all about? THE AUTHORS????
I had the pleasure of sharing lunch with three terrific voices.
Tom Wolf, Liza Klaussmann and Kevin Powers.
Each has a book coming out in the next few months.
Liza and Kevin are first time novelists who are receiving so much pre-press buzz the room was humming. I started Liza's book on the train home.
Tom Wolf is a classic. As I mentioned to the reporter from Publishers Weekly his legacy will outlive us all. Unfortunately his next title is embargoed so no early readers for us booksellers. BooHoo

Liza Klaussmann is sharing an evening with us in July at the New Canaan Library.
Save the date. July 26th
