Book Expo Recap: Books in the wild, a squee, and a T

Happy June! I’m just about recovered from going to the Book Expo last week. I had a great time, sneaking out of the Javits Center to have a quick lunch with my rockstar client Bill Konigsberg. Bill gave me a present! Check it out…

CGIromNUQAAbvZ6It’s a PORCUPINE OF TRUTH t-shirt! I know, I know. You wish you were as lucky as me. In case you didn’t know, THE PORCUPINE OF TRUTH came out last week and is already garnering starred reviews (School Library Journal and Booklist). Check out some of the places you might see Bill in the next few weeks and through the end of the year, where he will be reading and signing and you can get a copy of the book. Or, order one here.

CGLcgNiWYAAnn-LWhile at BEA I also got to hold an actual copy of Joe McGee‘s debut picture book, PEANUT BUTTER AND BRAINS: A ZOMBIE CULINARY TALE (Abrams, 2015) for the very first time! I loved seeing PB&B out in the wild! We’re eagerly looking forward to its publication on August 11th. You might even want to preorder it.

I was lucky enough to be trudging around the Javits Center all day on Friday with my lovely client Natasha Sinel. Natasha’s book, THE FIX (Sky Pony, 2015) comes out September 1st and we were so excited to hold the first advance reader’s copies that I actually squeed. Literally made a “squee” noise. Loudly. Seriously. You can preorder THE FIX here.

I also nabbed a bunch of great ARCs, some of which I’ve already dipped into. Brian Selznick’s THE MARVELS doesn’t disappoint. What a talented man and a lovely story. I just started GEORGE by Alex Gino, and am liking it very well. And I’m packing A.S. King’s I CRAWL THROUGH IT and Ali Benjamin’s THE THING ABOUT JELLYFISH, to take on my vacation next week!

For now, that’s all I’ve got for you good folks… Anybody else go to BEA?
