Isla continued her run at BookExpo yesterday, attending the Children’s Book & Author Breakfast and then a book signing in the morning. So far we only have a couple of photos from the event, but there are lots of fan-taken photos on Twitter, and I’ve embedded them below and added them as a ‘Moment’ on our Twitter account.
Marge In Charge will be available in the US on October 3rd.
The most prominent stars in children’s and young adult literature are coming together at ReedPOP’s BookExpo for one of the show’s biggest events – the Children’s Book & Author Breakfast. One of the most popular events at BookExpo each year, the 2017 Children’s Book & Author Breakfast draws over a thousand attendees for a morning of lively conversation with literary giants.
This year’s breakfast will be hosted by beloved co-anchor of NBC’s Today and chief legal correspondent for NBC News, Savannah Guthrie. Guthrie will discuss her new young readers’ book, Princesses Wear Pants, which was co-written with Allison Oppenheim and illustrated by Eva Byrne. She will be joined by actress Isla Fisher who unveils the first book in her new Marge In Charge series and Jason Reynolds (When I Was The Greatest) who will take the stage to talk about his three forthcoming works, YA Spider-Man novel Miles Morales and novels Patina and Long Way Down. Founding member of We Need Diverse Books™ Marieke Nijkamp (This Is Where It Ends) will talk about her new YA novel Before I Let Go and acclaimed author Jennifer Weiner will discuss her middle grade book Little Bigfoot, Big City.
Taking place Friday, June 2, the BookExpo Children’s Book & Author Breakfast will kick off the final day of the 3-day event, further establishing BookExpo as the must-attend destination for the publishing industry.
