BookExpo America announced the authors and books for this year’s three Editors Buzz Forums, which feature book editors discussing their titles. Three committees of booksellers, librarians, and other industry professionals reviewed the submissions in each category and voted for the final selections. This year, there will be seven books, up from six, presented at the adult editors panel; the middle grade and young adult panels each feature five selections.

The schedule and book selections are as follows:
