Peyton Rose, author of award-winning novel, The Long Way Home, attended BookExpo America 2016 as a debut author for 220 Publishing. His novel is an entirely original exploration of contemporary America. The book punches holes in stereotypes and misconceptions of the South that sadly continue to exist. The author leaves no stone unturned in this quest to document the trials and tribulations of growing up fatherless in the United States at the turn of the millennium.
“BookExpo America is in Chicago this year and it’s a great opportunity for me to see what is out there. Meet like-minded people who want to talk books and writing. I’m overjoyed with excitement that I have the opportunity to participate.”
“BookExpo America (BEA) is North America’s largest gathering of book industry professionals from around the globe.
