Here are some samples of the more than 100 pieces of original art for children's books that will be auctioned in New York City next Wednesday at BookExpo America (BEA). The proceeds benefit the American Booksellers Foundation for Free Expression and its defense of the free speech rights of young readers. Which work(s) would you bid on?
BEA is the annual extravaganza of the book publishing industry, featuring author signings, chi chi receptions, and media events galore. Besides hosting Booth #4322 at the Javits Center, Daedalus Books employees are fanning out to attend seminars on e-book publishing, social media, and all kinds of groovy stuff. Yours truly will be learning how to be a better blogger!
