BookExpo America (BEA) has announced authors and speakers for this year’s convention. The Thursday breakfast packs John Grisham and Condoleeza Rice and Mary Roach along with emcee Jon Stewart (in conjunction with fall publication of The Daily Show Presents Earth (The Book): A Visitor’s Guide to the Human Race).
Sara Gruen is among the Thursday luncheon authors for her delayed second novel Ape House, and Sarah Ferguson will be among the Wednesday children’s breakfast authors. Author featured authors include Cory Doctorow, William Gibson, Christopher Hitchens, Patton Oswalt, Richard Peck, and Mitali Perkins.
BEA says they are adding a third on-the-floor author stage, with those slots to be filled in March and April.
