BookExpo America 2014BookExpo America 2014 announced the authors and books for this year’s Editors Buzz Forums.

Three committees of booksellers, librarians and other industry professionals reviewed submissions in each category, according to release from BEA. BEA officials said more committee members were added to the selection process this year in order to achieve the widest possible consensus. One of the changes that came about was the addition of a seventh book to the Adult Editor Buzz Panel.

BookExpo America will take place May 29-May 31 in New York City.
