Continuing along with the presentation from the other day, here is part two of the wandering at Book Expo America 2013 that I attended with Skeleton Pete. Much like the part one chapter, this will be a lot more images and only some limited narration.
It’s been a couple of years since I had adventured into the Book Expo America, and the first time around I had been able to attend the Blog Expo during the very same week which made the educational time all the more exciting. This year there would be no co-location with the blogging event and the halls of Javits were dedicated to the Book Expo alone. I would be joined by my stalwart colleague Skeleton Pete and our goal would be to focus on the properties that appeal to our mutual reader demographic. Join me on this largely photographic journey and by all means enjoy.
This is just a visual of the outside of the area designated as the Press Room. Essentially this was a cordoned off by a curtain space in the lobby of the Javits that had some tables and electricity and WiFi so we members of the media could keep our Social Networks in tune with the happenings around us. They also had coffee which I found to be a very welcome thing at the hour that we had arrived 🙂
One of the first stops we made was at the signing tables to check in with author D.L. King who would be offering up a new book that she edited and contributed tales to.
Well hello once more my dear readers it is so nice to have you back with us for the final look into the 2011 Toy Fair. I admire your resolve and interest in the subject matter and so without any further adieu welcome to chapter seven – The Final Toy Fair 2011 Thrill……This cool pirate ship is a part of the Folkmanis puppets display. What neat stuff they had. I got a kick out of how the ship appeared to be on the high seas as well. “Avast ye lubbers”.
