BEA Suffers Major Setback

While BookExpo America has a great number of luminaries scheduled for speaking such as Alan Greenspan and Stephen Colbert. The highlight of Saturday evening was to be a concert featuring Jon Bon Jovi and Amy Grant. The concert was to benefit the Book Industry Foundation. Flying Dolphin Press was the main sponsor and informed BEA that Bon Jovi’s November 2007 book, Believe, was being postponed indefinitely, and therefore Bon Jovi was pulling out. The cost to continue the concert with just Grant was simply prohibitive at this time. Refunds are currently being processed.
