Book Expo America is known for its free books, cluster of publishers and authors galore. But one of the most exciting elements of the convention is largely unknown: publishers can throw some truly unique after-parties for their authors, accounts, and media. It’s a great time to mingle with colleagues, authors, and the people responsible for getting the books you read and enjoy out in public.
This year I was invited to the Random House Children’s Books BEA after-party, celebrating this year’s biggest RHCB authors, including Christopher Paolini, in attendance to promote Inheritance (Book 4)! The party was on The Intrepid – a retired aircraft carrier docked in the NY Harbor. Also in attendance were many familiar faces, including Tyra Banks, James Dashner, Lauren Kate, Michael Scott, N.D. Wilson, and more!
