I was invited by Jenny Milchman to participate in a panel on the “brave new world of publishing,” along with one of my favorite editors, Reagan Arthur (Reagan Arthur Books, Little Brown), FinePrint Literary Management’s hilarious and astute agent Janet Reid, independent Seattle-based publisher, Aaron Talwar and the delightful Amy Gash of Algonquin Press. The event was hosted by Watchung Booksellers in media-savvy Montlair, NJ, a wonderful small but savvy independent bookseller, and it was packed. Perhaps the draw was the tasty hors d’oeuvres and desserts provided by Milchman or the distinguished panel itself.
John Mutter covers the event in his Shelf-Awareness (November 1, 2010). Here is the link:
Thank you, John, for covering our event, and especially to Jenny her careful planning, enthusiastic promotion, and lively questions, which made it great fun for all of the participants, and hopefully the attendees.
