Today marks the first official day of the Book Expo of America (or BEA as us industry folks call it) 2012. This year will be the first one I don't attend the convention at all. It's a strange feeling, knowing almost every one of my friends in the biz is going, but it's kind of nice to breathe for a minute and not be pushing through the crowds in the Javits Center. And besides, the #bea12 hashtags are exploding on Twitter so I'm sure I can keep up with most things that way.
If not, apparently there is now live footage being shown online at the BEA website. You can even check out their "streaming schedule" so you don't miss your favorite panels.
Kind of a handy little feature! :)
