BEA 2015 is Almost Here!
After months of waiting, BEA will be here in less than a week! I am currently at MISTI-Con from Thursday, May 21 - Monday, May 25 for 5 epic days of Harry Potter fandom fun! But after Monday, it will be BEA mode all the way. I will be leaving from Boston on Tuesday, May 26 in the late morning for Penn Station.

Where to find me during BEA week
Tuesday, May 26, 2015
My train will be arriving at Penn Station sometime after 3:00 p.m. and I will most likely be checking into the hotel with my friend Selina. I want to pick up my badge if the registration area is open on my arrival day. I am not sure if Selina is attending the Teen Author Festival but I plan to attend Jenny Han's P.S. I Still Love You Release Party hosted by Powerhouse Dumbo in Brooklyn. Make sure you RSVP if you decide to attend. I would love to meet up with anyone who plans to attend the event.

BEA Day 1 is quite short with the Exhibit Hall being open from 1:00 to 5:30 p.m. This day will be my chill day to scope around the area and to meet up with people. The only author signing I plan to attend is the Mike Curato signing and I plan to attend the galley drop for Tonight the Streets are Ours by Leila Sales. Other than that, I am pretty much free to do whatever I please.

BEA Day 2 is tame but a little bit more busier than Wednesday. The Exhibit Hall opens at 9 a.m. and closes at 5:30 p.m. Authors that I must meet include Carolyn Mackler and C. Alexander London. If time allows, I would also like to meet Josephine Angelini and Soman Chainani.

BEA Day 3 is my crazy day and it should be interesting how I plan to prioritize everything I want to do. Selina and I plan to attend the Children's Author Breakfast from 8:00 - 9:30 a.m. I would love to meet Richelle Mead! Her signing is a must! Other authors I would love to meet include Kim Liggett, Liza Wiemer, Marie Lu and Jennifer Walkup. I also plan to pick Dream Things True by Marie Marquardt at a galley drop. There are plenty of other things I want to do this day but it depends on how much free time I have. We'll wait and see since my train leaves sometime after 5:30 p.m. from Penn Station to head back into Boston.
Are you going to BEA 2015? If so what are you looking forward to?
