Almost forgot about this: if you're around New York this Sunday (December 7th), I'll be on a panel at the New York Center for Independent Publishing's Indie & Small Press Book Fair. The panel, at 2 p.m., is called "The Future of Independent Publishing" and is described like so:
As new technologies once again turn the publishing world on its ear, small presses are surviving – and thriving – by embracing alternative publishing models, from limited editions that treat books as collectable objects to innovative multi-media that make digital books more fluid, interactive and open source. In a conversation led by Buzz Poole (Managing Editor, Mark Batty Publisher), Alex Rose (Publisher, Hotel St. George Press), Ben Greenman (Editor, The New Yorker), Matvei Yankelevich (Founding Editor, Ugly Duckling Presse), and Dan Visel (Future of the Book) discuss how to maintain the dynamic relationship between publisher, author and reader in the digital age, and how to create books that reflect and respond to our interactive cultural landscape.
The Fair (which starts Saturday) is free and open to the public; it's at NYCIP, The General Building, 20 West 44th Street, New York. It's been a bad week for publishing, but maybe there's hope with the indies?
