Here it is, the promised second update and it’s a biggie. I haven’t listened all of the authors signing. That would be a large post. I listed a lot of authors I want to meet, as well as some famous people, and authors I think are pretty well known. Of course you can check out the full list yourself, and add them to your planner, by going to session search, clicking on education and authors, then on the right side selecting on view all participants. Unfortunately, that will only show you the author’s name, not date/time/location etc. For that, you must search through the panels or through event type in the scroll down bar.


Here are some of the authors signing. If you haven’t been to BEA before, there are some authors, the more popular ones, that you need tickets for. Those you should get IMMEDIATELY as they sell out fast. They are free, but are given out really fast. Make that your priority if those people are on your list. I listed the ones who needs tickets. There are more, but I didn’t like/know all of them to include them in my list.

Also, again if you’re new, you need to “donate” a dollar for each signing, so if cash is limited, I’d make a list in who is in your top. There are also no guarantees that you will meet the author. Sorry! If the line is too long and time is up, that’s it. So, get there early if the person is in your top 5 or so. I can’t wait until the app is available and I can do this more efficiently.

I hope you see some good authors. I know, myself, I am booked between 1-2 on Friday. It’ll be a tough one. I am debating meeting Alan Cumming because I am a huge fan of him as an actor but I have limited time. My celebrities are authors. Come on now.




Happy reading. I will be posting the BIG update–BOOKS!!!– in the next week. So stay alert for that. BEA is only 4 weeks away!!
