At the Publishing Hackathon at BookExpo America on Friday afternoon, six book discovery startups will pitch their ideas to a panel of six judges, including Reddit cofounder Alexis Ohanian, Silver Lake Capital director Stephen Evans and Perseus Books Group CEO David Steinberger. The winner will get $ 10,000 and a meeting with William Morris Endeavor cofounder Ari Emanuel.

The Hackathon caps off three days of digital publishing events at BEA. I’ve been here all week, covering topics like¬†new trends in ebook pricing, the new ebook publishers¬†and the biggest difference between book publishers and Amazon.

The event starts at 3 PM ET, and I’ll be live-blogging it here.
