About this Book

Beyond the Book

This article relates to The Poet's Funeral

Print Review

The ABA Convention is now known as BEA (Book Expo America). It's the largest book show in the USA, with about 35,000 people attending each year.  Most are connected with the book industry in some shape or form, but it also attracts many savvy members of the public as well.  

The key attraction for many are the approximate 1,000 authors (many of whom are household names) who autograph their books at each BEA, often giving away free copies in the process.

In 2005, industry sources estimated that about 50% of all books signed at BEA were for sale on Ebay within the week - some within only a few minutes of being signed!

BEA will return to Las Vegas in 2010, for the first time in 20 years.
