Editors Buzz Reports from the 2011 BEA

forgive the poor photo!

These are the books the editors presented, Monday afternoon, for the Adult Editors Buzz. They were so very passionate about their books. I've already read "We The Animals", it was great. I'm waiting for my shipment to arrive to read some of the others. I'm really excited about The Night Circus and The Art of Fielding.

THE ART OF FIELDING by Chad Harbach, Little, Brown and Company – Michael Pietsch, VP & Publisher
THE NIGHT CIRCUS by Erin Morgenstern, Doubleday – Alison Callahan, Executive Editor
THE UNDERSIDE OF JOY by Sere Prince Halverson, Dutton – Denise Roy, Sr. Editor

WE THE ANIMALS by Justin Torres, Houghton Mifflin Harcourt – Jenna Johnson, Sr. Editor

At the Young Adult Editors Buzz, on Tuesday afternoon, four great books were presented.  Only Little Brown gave out an ARC and I'm looking forward to reading it.  Believe me, they all sounded good.

BEA Middle Grade Editors Buzz was on Wednesday afternoon.  It was really insightful and passionate; it's so wonderful to hear the editors speak.

In total, I shipped 100 pounds of books home.  I'm just waiting for UPS, now, so I can sort them out.
