BookExpo America (BEA) is the book industry’s number one book and author event in North America, and Ken Cook Co. is happy to be there. BEA will take place in the dynamic city of Chicago May 11-13, 2016. Representing Ken Cook Co. is Brian McGowan, Vice President Corporate Services, and Outside Sales Representative Kyle Schlies. With print clients of all sizes, Ken Cook Co. services publishers and authors seeking short-run paperback books.
“We can do quality short-run paperback printing at a great price without sacrificing lead time,” says McGowan. Schlies adds, “We’re also here for authors needing additional services, such as desktop publishing, layout, graphic design and translation.”
BEA is designed for authors, bloggers, publishers, booksellers, retailers, librarians, educators and rights/licensing professionals. Attendees will learn about trends in the publishing industry, printing, bookselling, interacting with readers, and more. More than 400 authors will be available throughout the three-day event to give autographs.
