Taking the Industry’s Temperature at BEA

Book Expo America is the publishing world’s most important single event of the year. It’s also the single best place to explore the industry’s hopes, fears, challenges, and promise. We talked with people from big houses, innovative independents, indie booksellers, bloggers, and all corners of the business. Here’s a video report we made from those conversations, produced together with IKA Collective (and with a soundtrack provided by Sound Hound). Was BEA 09 “The death march of the industry” or “An incredible rush”? Maybe it was both. But we left feeling like it was one of the most energized and interesting BEAs in memory.
