The American Booksellers Association presents educational sessions at Book Expo of America (BEA) that are designed for independent booksellers and are open to all BEA attendees. This year, in order to maximize members’ interactions with the industry as a whole, ABA Education is being developed jointly with the BEA, and sessions will be presented both on Wednesday, May 29, as well as at other times during the course of the Expo. What was known as the ABA Day of Education has evolved to become Bookselling Today & ABA Education.
The Bookselling and Author Awards Lunch was held during the BEA on Thursday, May 30 from 12:15 to 1:45 p.m. in the Special Events Hall of the Jacob K. Javits Convention Center. This year’s event featured the presentation of the 2013 Indies Choice Book Awards and the E.B. White Read-Aloud Awards.
