The bestselling author meet and greet comes in conjunction with Lulu.com CEO and Founder Bob Young’s presentation on two panels at BEA on Sunday, June 3rd.

Both panels take place Sunday, June 3rd at the Javits Convention Center in New York.
We’re very excited to be involved with such a great show like BEA,” says Young. “We’re even more excited to be able to put an end to the stigma that self-published authors don’t make any money.

We can't wait for BEA attendees to get to meet these remarkable authors who each come from different backgrounds, but who have each found success.”
