Clinton speech gives BookExpo giant kick start

Cabot writes “The U.S. book world’s annual national convention, BookExpo America, should mark the convergence of publishing, politics and star power.

Bill Clinton, former U.S. president and future best-selling memoirist, makes his first official stop on what his literary representative, attorney Robert Barnett, has billed “the mother and father of all roll outs.” Clinton’s memoir, My Life, is scheduled for release on June 22 with a first printing of 1.5 million. His keynote speech this Thursday at BookExpo is the convention’s biggest event in recent memory.
