U.S. Book Show Adds Oprah Winfrey and Keanu Reeves to its list of Speakers

Publishers Weekly is hosting a new virtual book trade fair later this month called the U.S. Book Show. The event has added two notable names to its list of speakers: legendary talk show host Oprah Winfrey, and award-winning actor Keanu Reeves. 

The U.S. Book Show is serving as a replacement for BookExpo, a similar event that closed its doors last year. The trade show will take place virtually from May 25-27. According to a statement from Publishers Weekly, Winfrey will deliver the Keynote address on the morning of May 25. She will be discussing her newest book released in April and Reeves will be hosting a panel about a graphic novel he wrote. 

Winfrey and Reeves join an already long and profound list of speakers, including Senator Elizabeth Warren, Top Chef host Padma Lakshmi, and E Street Band member Steven Van Zandt. The event will also host an Editor’s Pick panel, where some of the top book editors in the industry will reveal their list of the most anticipated books for the fall. 

Jim Milliot, editorial director of Publishers Weekly, explained the main purpose of this new book show, “What we really want to drive the show is: Here are the books that you should know about.” 

The event will be live-streamed starting May 25, and will feature panels, discussions, and speeches, as well as opportunities to network. This new, virtual U.S. Book Show allows the tradition of book trade fairs to continue on in a safe way.
