Barbra Streisand will appear at the opening-night keynote reception for BookExpo America to promote "My Passion for Design."
The book world's annual national convention will be held May 25-27 at the Jacob K. Javits Center in New York City.
Event director Steven Rosato says Tuesday that Streisand's appearance "calls attention to the strength, vitality and excitement that is so much part of the book industry."
"My Passion for Design" reveals the taste and style that have inspired the singer's homes and collections. It will be Streisand's first appearance on behalf of the book, to be published Nov. 16 by Viking.
