NYC Book Expo and Book Con has become one big playground for literary lovers, publishers and creators during this amazing event.
Over the years these two amazing events have joined in to offer a full display of authors, books, opportunities to connect readers libraries and literary enthusiast over the course of 5 days. We were so excited to spend the weekend touring the floors at the NYC Javits Center. V & K were so excited to explore the children’s books section of scholastic as well as checking out the new “Diary of a Wimpy Kid” . While I was happy to have them lead the way and chaperone.
Walking into the center was very exciting their faces were highlighted when noticing the huge image of our friend (in our minds) Jim Patterson. Whom introduced his new book collaboration with Bill Clinton “The President is missing”. Which has just been added to my must read pile right after MICHELLE OBAMA’s published story, “Becoming”.
I’m always inspired by the book expo because of my background in publishing and writing. I love to attend to refresh my visions and connections with all of the great people working the floor. There is always something new to discover in this creative space. Quirk Books a publishing and creative group of leaders in the literary world set a very open and inviting setting to allow you to learn more about what they offer their readers and authors. The nostalgic animation to the new sense of fun and pops of color was noticed in their array of publishing.
V & K’s highlights included Harry Potter’s portion of the Expo ; I mean don’t we all!
The opportunity to meet a very talented Joker during Book Con was quite frightening and exciting!
The day was made when the girls were able to take a picture with (wink) Harry and Meghan Markle while wearing crowns themselves.
All of the added animation continue to bring everyone’s imagination to life; which is why we love attending each year.
