Barbra Streisand to Keynote BookExpo, Promoting Her Design Book

0529steisandbook.jpg

Just shy of a year ago, we told you the news that Barbra Streisand was planning to write a book about design called (sadly missing any album or song puns) My Passion for Design. The book, which is about exactly what is sounds like, Ms. Streisand’s passion for design (in particular, interior design and architecture), still isn’t set to come out until mid-November, but because it’s apt to be a nice seller for the publishing industry, and to help drum up support for it early, it’s been announced that Streisand will be the keynote speaker at next month’s BookExpo America, the New York-based trade show. Here’s a bit:

“We are honored to welcome Barbra Streisand to our stage,” notes Steven Rosato, Event Director for BookExpo America. “One of the truly exceptional things about having a distinguished guest like Ms. Streisand headline our event for us is that it calls attention to the strength, vitality, and excitement that is so much part of the book industry. We are deeply grateful to Ms. Streisand for committing her time and energy to what is certain to be a stellar moment at BEA.”
