I have now confirmed the sad news that Book Expo Canada is no longer in existence.
I've gone to BEC the past 3 years and have really loved it; I found authors there that I would not have otherwise, like Kate Story, and Barbara Murray. I enjoyed meeting new authors and connecting with old friends in the publishing world. I will really miss it!
Here's my account of 2008 (meeting Paul Gross among other things!)
And 2007 (getting a copy of Frances Itani's Remembering the Bones was a highlight).
