Although the publishing industry has faced many challenges in the past few years, one imagines a mainstay like BookExpo America (BEA) would be one of the few things to remain consistent. On the contrary, its schedule is constantly changing, and next year, so will the venue. Held May 27-May 29 at the Jacob K. Javits Convention Center in New York, the 2015 annual celebration of all things literary brought together editors, librarians, booksellers, vendors, and other industry professionals to discuss the marketplace, meet their favorite authors, and grab advance copies of upcoming titles. Many of the exhibitors who remained on the show floor from BEA sold books for $5 or $10 and gave away sample chapters, bookmarks, and other promotional items.
