Three Separate Buzz Panels for Adult, Young Adult, and

Middle Grade Titles

BEA has just revealed the authors and books that have been selected for this year’s Editors Buzz Forums.   Three separate committees of booksellers, librarians and other industry professionals have reviewed the numerous submissions in each category and voted for this year’s final selections.   The highly anticipated Buzz Forums are among the most notable and significant platforms for launching new books and creating awareness for noteworthy titles and authors at BEA.  Insightful and passionate, the forums typically attract a large audience of booksellers and media who are eager to hear about, and then talk about, the new titles which have been singled out for discussion and presentation. 

As has been the custom for the past several years, BEA will present three separate panels, including Adult Editors Buzz, Young Adult (YA) Editors Buzz and Middle Grade Editors Buzz.  The Buzz panel presentations, which feature book editors discussing the individual selections, will be supplemented with an Author Stage appearance for the chosen authors. 

The BEA Editors Buzz Forums and book selections are as follows:
