Having a favorite author add a personalized inscription and autograph turns a book into a cherished keepsake. With a wide array of bird-book authors at the 2017 American Birding Expo, you’ll have plenty of opportunities to get your favorite book signed. Among the authors who have committed to being at the Expo, are Scott Weidensaul, Julie Zickefoose, George Armistead, Jeffrey A. Gordon, Alvaro Jaramillo, J.R. Ripley, Jan Pierson, Bill Thompson III, Steve Shunk, John and Cathryn Sill, Jim Carpenter, John Schaust, and many others. While there is no formal gathering of authors for a book signing, all of them will be present in their respective exhibitor booths during the Expo. In addition, Houghton Mifflin Harcourt and Princeton University Press, the two leading publishers of birding and nature reference and guidebooks in the United States, will be selling their most popular titles from their exhibitor booths.
