BookExpo America Galley Guides

What book are you most excited about this year? Over at Library Journal, Barbara Hoffert has published her annual “BEA Galley & Signing Guide.” The handy resource will help you make sure you can find all the galley copies and authors you need at BookExpo America.

Check it out: “Because hunting through the aisles for the book or author you love can be a challenge, I’ve been tracking some of the show’s top titles, from large publishers and small, focusing on tote-away galleys from adult authors and key in-booth signings, always harder to pin down than signings in the Autographing Area. Plus, for the digitally inclined, I’ve embedded icons that will guide you straight to NetGalley—just another sign that those titles are hot.”

If you want to sample the books, Publishers Marketplace and NetGalley teamed up to create BEA Buzz Books, a digital collection of more than 30 samples of highly anticipated books–including excerpts from books by Junot Diaz, Barbara Kingsolver, Dennis Lehane and Neil Young.

Neil Young to Speak at BookExpo America

Rock legend Neil Young will headline an event at this year’s BookExpo America. “A Conversation with Neil Young” will take place on June 6th.

Young (pictured, in 1970) will be talking about his forthcoming memoir Waging Heavy Peace. When Young’s book deal was first announced, Young said that “writing books fit me like a glove.” The event is free, but seating will be provided on a first come, first served basis.

BEA show manager Steve Rosato had this statement in the release: “This appearance will be a highlight of our show and I am sure it will live on as one of our great all time moments in BEA history. I have no doubt that on Wednesday, June 6 at 12 noon just about everyone in the Javits Center will be packed into the Special Events Hall!”

Neil Young Lands Book Deal with Blue Rider Press

Rock legend Neil Young has inked a deal to publish his memoir with Penguin’s Blue Rider Press imprint. Tentatively titled Waging Heavy Peace, publication is set for fall 2012.

Lookout Management manager Elliot Roberts negotiated the deal with Blue Rider publisher David Rosenthal. The publisher launched his new imprint last year.

Young (pictured, in 1970) had this quote in the release: “I felt like writing books fit me like a glove; I started and I just kept going. That’s the way my Daddy used to do it on his old Underwood up in the attic. He said, ‘Just keep writing, you never know what will turn up.’”
