Librarians & Educators

BookExpo offers a full line up of events and education for librarians and educators. Here are just some of the things that may be of particular interest to you.

  • Exhibits

    The largest show floor in North America with 400+ exhibitors displaying their upcoming titles—in digital, audio and print, as well as every genre from thrillers to comedies, from book publishers and authors across the country and around the world.

  • New Titles and Authors

    At BookExpo you can find books for any grade level. Educate your class in any subject with books specific to the lessons and classes you teach.

    Librarians and educators can discover the latest books, advanced reader copies from the newest authors, and galleys that will be buzzing for the summer and fall seasons. Preparing for lesson plans for the coming school year is a breeze when you’re ahead of the curve.

  • Autographing

    Meet, engage with, and get autographs from hundreds of authors. There's no better place to find the next big author than at BookExpo.
