BookExpo America 2009 in NYC

I will be attending again the Book Expo America this year. Some of the pavilions I am looking forward to visiting are : The Children's Book Pavilion , The African American Pavilion,Writers Row, Independent Publishers , Graphic Novel, and of course, the Art Pavilion.. There will be close to 2000 exhibitors and there will be lots of special events such as book signings, conferences, and breakfast and luncheons with authors and illustrators.

Below is a cover of one of the books I've illustrated entitled From Our Mother's Hearth, Bukusu Folktales and Proverbs at the Book Expo 2005:
