I’m Matt Wasowski, Content Director for BookExpo.
One of the highlights of our year is announcing our Special Events and there’s none bigger than the Adult Book & Author Breakfast which consistently showcases the best and brightest in books and entertainment.
This year sets a new standard as comedian and actress Whitney Cummings will play host and be joined by Blackish creator Kenya Barris and literary powerhouses Claire Messud and Jesmyn Ward.
If that wasn’t enough we’ll have a special “prologue” from the master of horror himself, Stephen King, and his son Owen.
We’ve tweaked the format of the breakfast to put more authors on stage and more importantly create candid conversation that gives you the story behind the story.
Each author will provide an inside look at their new work before they join together on the couch and answer questions from Whitney Cummings (with an assist from attendees who can submit questions via Twitter before the show).
Are you as excited as we are? Who’s your favorite author in the line up?
