“You’re headed to BEA this week?” says Admin.

“Book Expo America,” Spence says. “At the Javits Center.”

“Don’t get lost in there.”

“Also there’s a video with the Association of American Publishers. One of the questions apparently is about what three books you’d want if stranded on a desert island.”

“‘How To Survive on a Desert Island,’ ‘Boat Building 101,’ ‘Navigation for Dummies.'”

“Not sure that’s what they’re after,” Spence says. “I wonder what suggestions we’ll get in the Down Under section.”
