Sadly, winning the trip is the only was I'm going to be able to go. BEA is a yearly event held at the Javits Center in New York. Most major publishers (and dozens of small presses) set up on the showroom floor to promote their forthcoming titles. There are author breakfasts, signings, and educational events for booksellers. I've gone almost every year since 2007, and I'd love to go again this year!
