Scholastic at BookExpo America and BookCon 2017

This weekend was a big one in the publishing world: Book Expo America (BEA) and BookCon!

This year, the back-to-back conventions returned to the Javits Center in New York City after a quick stop in Chicago for 2016. BEA remains the largest publishing event in North America, and Book Con — now in its fourth year — is rapidly gaining popularity as a consumer-facing event. (Think of it as a book-specific Comic Con!)

Scholastic and I Read YA was at both conventions all four days with a big booth, lots of author signings, and numerous giveaways! With authors such as Dav Pilkey, Maggie Stiefvater, Daniel José Older and R.L. Stine meeting fans each day, I Read YA #bookstagram stations, and the Summer Reading Road Trip RV inside at Family HQ on Sunday, we made sure to share all the fun and excitement across our social media accounts! Check out some of the highlights below.
