You’d better pack your comfy shoes. Not only is New York a walking city, but the programs and exhibits at the Jacob K. Javits Convention Center and elsewhere during BookExpo American (BEA) will keep you busier than a Saturday at the library. Before the show proper begins, LJ and sister publication School Library Journal (SLJ) will each host our annual Day of Dialog (DoD) event at the McGraw-Hill Conference Center. The panels, presentations, and signings at DoD are highlights of our year, and the 2014 lineups are particularly rich.

BEA For All: A Librarian’s Guide to BookExpo America 2013

To make the most of BEA, here are the offerings that are best for librarians—not all of them are particularly aimed at our profession, but eavesdropping on “the other side” can be illuminating.
