BookExpo 2018 in New York City!

05 June 2018

Every year as summer begins to heat up, the publishing industry invades the Javits Center for a one-of-a-kind book lovers’ extravaganza: BookExpo! The Bright team was out in force, championing our authors and illustrators, spotting many a Bright book on shelves, front-and-center displays, and in one case, blown up onto a flyer the size of a three-story building (flattering to the fantastic James Lancett, to say the least!). See below for our snapshots from all three days of the convention.

We wanted to know more about what inspired Aura to create the first picture book homage to Gloria Steinem, the feminist icon, and how she worked with her agent and Sterling Publishing to bring the idea from a gallery show to its final form.
