Exploring The Book Expo 2018: Part One

It was once again time for the annual Book Expo at the Javits Center and as tenured readers of “The Chronicles” know, we have been attending this particular convention since around 2011. I’ve only missed it twice since then with one of the times happening when it relocated to Chicago for some reason. This adventure was going to be the first in a series of events since not only will the Book Expo lead us into The Book Con, but the Five Points Festival will be happening in a few days and we are attending that as well. The Book Con stuff will be here while the Five Points Festival coverage will fall to PiercingMetal.com so do please check both of those out as they go live.
