On March 4, BookExpo America (BEA) announced the speakers for its special events program at this year's convention to be held at the McCormick Place Convention Center in Chicago, from June 3 - June 6. Three Book & Author breakfasts, a lunch, and an audiobook tea are among the events planned, and the hosts include NPR's Terry Gross, Vanity Fair's Graydon Carter, and C-SPAN's Brian Lamb.
Vanity Fair's Carter will host Jon Stewart, Gish Jen, and Tom Wolfe at the Sunday morning breakfast. Tickets for the Book & Author breakfasts are $25, and the events will be held each morning from 8:00 a.m. - 9:30 a.m. in the Grand Ballroom.
Apparently, Jon has penned a book between shows called The Daily Show Presents...AMERICA THE BOOK: A Citizens Guide to Democracy Inaction.
