Veronica Roth and Allegiant (Divergent Book 3) take over Book Expo America 2013

Allegiant author and BEA keynote speaker, Veronica Roth, created quite a splash at the large annual Book Expo America that took place last week in New York.  Veronica not only attended, but signed limited edition Allegiant posters for attendees of the book festival.  Here are all the photos, interviews, and transcripts from everything Divergent related from BEA 2013.

Allegiant posters were HUGE.  Lifesize and larger!.  Check out Page to Premiere writer Kimmy West standing with one!

Veronica Roth at the panel as speaker:

Divergent Examiner transcribed Veronica's full speech, here is a excerpt pertaining to Divergent fans:

My readers have helped me to end my reading drought because I love how they read. I love how they remember every detail and ask me about the characters and what will happen to them and what they meant when they said what they said on Page 45 or what I meant by making them say that horrible thing they said on Page 45.

They care about the story. The story is real for them because they're able to immerse themselves completely, and they want to tell you about all the things they like, whether it's a comic book or Ernest Hemingway or whatever lies between. The more like them I become, the more I'm able to say I'm here to learn and I want to love this book and see the value in it, the more I'm able to reclaim my love of reading and the more different kinds of books I'm able to appreciate. Read more.

Check out the posters, t-shirts, and tote bags that lucky Divergent fans received!  I'm so jealous!!

Here are some photos of Veronica signing Allegiant posters for fans:

BEA Livestream also got an exclusive interview with Veronica after her author breakfast at the event.  She talks a little about Allegiant.  Veronica says, "you get to see what's beyond the fence."

Thanks to DivergentFansUK for converting this to youtube to be able to share.

i think outside the fence is like nothing.... just some people out there, barely surviving. like where everything is run down and destroyed. sort of like in the maze runner.

I am seriously thinking its a society of normal people who are using Chicago as a test ground to see what the world would be like should it ever break into war OR there will be more people just without factions, kind of like a free for all.
