Remember the Scholastic Book Fair? It was only the best day of the school year! You and your classmates clamoring for the latest and greatest books in an apple juice-induced frenzy... It was a simpler time.

Thankfully, adulthood doesn’t mean leaving book fairs behind. The BookExpo is the grownup version of the Scholastic Book Fair. This is where publishers go to debut their new titles. Even Scholastic was there – the nostalgia was real!

At BookExpo, we had the chance to chat with editors, brush elbows with authors and see what’s coming to a bookstore (or a Kindle) near you. We selflessly fought through paper cuts to bring you the best new books out this summer – and titles you should keep an eye out for later this year.
