BookExpo America or BEA as it’s better known is fast approaching and it’s set to be packed with literary stars. According to Publishers Weekly, comedienne and E! personality Chelsea Handler (Are You There, Vodka? It’s Me, Chelsea), Ishmael Beah (A Long Way Gone: Memoirs of a Boy Soldier), Doris Kearns Goodwin (Team of Rivals: The Political Genius of Abraham Lincoln), and Wally Lamb (She’s Come Undone) are among the literati to be featured in a series of author breakfasts. There will be two Adult Book & Author Breakfasts, and one Children’s Book & Author Breakfast over the four-day conference. Oscar-winner Octavia Spencer, author of forthcoming YA novel The Case of the Time-Capsule Bandit, will MC one of the breakfasts as will MSNBC’s Chris Matthews.
