A question from LCW member Bill Heinrich:

LCW member Bill Heinrich hope to attend the BookExpo America (BEA), the largest annual book trade fair in the United States held at the Jacob K. Javitz Convention Center, June 4-7. Publishers, authors, literary agents, manufacturers, and others attend this annual convention. It is not restricted to Christian publishing, but it covers the wide range of genre. He's looking for some info on the event if anyone from the LCW network has participated. If you can answer either of the following questions, please contact Bill at: <>
1. Has anyone attended this event in the past and would you recommend it? 
2. Do you know of anyone going?
