Stesha Brandon handles events and publicity for Seattle's University Bookstore, the oldest and largest independent bookstore in Washington state. This was her fifth year attending Book Expo America. She says:

I've been seeing a lot of high-quality mid-list and also debut books this season. I tend to meet with the fantastic literary fiction publishers -- Farrar, Straus, and Giroux, MacAdam/Cage, Random House, Harcourt, Norton -- they're really giving people a shot. Across the booths, I have seen a lot of really fantastic, strong debuts and growing mid-lists.
