BEA Program will Connect Authors to Readers Across NYC is the headline from our press release about New York Book Week. The notion of engaging the public has been an idea BEA has eyed for years. We never were able to do anything substantive until the concept of engaging partners that already create great literary programming came to fruition. BEA always had 2 huge assets that made the concept seem inevitable - access to hundreds of great authors and a robust media list that covers publishing.
Working with the likes Times Talks, the 92nd Street Y, The New York Public Library, The Brooklyn Public Library, Symphony Space, Barnes & Noble Booksellers and selected member stores of IBNYC (Independent Booksellers of New York City) including Housing Works, PowerHouse Arena and Book Culture of takes what was a hopeful idea and makes it a reality. New York Book Week gives New York City something it needs, deserves and is able to support - a week of events about authors & books. All these venues will promote their events to fans of reading (as BEA had never been able to do) and BEA will aggregate the programming on the page below and promote all these events to the press that will be covering BEA and now beyond!
