It is very cool because you never know who may be sitting at the next table! We always try to have a few famous authors and celebrities attend to help bring attention to our events. The NEAE’s events take place all around New England. The Expo has over 1,000 authors and publishing professionals, (as well as TV, radio and music celebrities) on its contact list.
