What to See at This Year’s New York BookExpo

It’s 2019 and book publishing is officially not dead. At least that’s the feeling you get when you venture out to Midtown to BookExpo, New York’s largest show for publishers, bookshop owners, and all-around book lovers.

This year the show has expanded further to include a section for licensing print and digital content and a section for bookshop owners to buy and discover book-related gifts and stationery to stock up on. All that in the midst of dozens of book fans lining up to meet their favorite authors and writers and get their autographs.
