This Week in the Writing World...May 27

by Brooke Favero

BEA is in the air. Dystel & Goderich give an interesting perspective on BEA and staying in the (writing/publishing) race. Janet Reid dishes on day one of BEA and The Rejecter also recaps BEA. Kirkus Reviews lists the top 26 books to snag at BEA. Which of these titles would you love to get? I can't decide between Legend and The Flint Heart.
