Covering Books Around the World

Covering Books Around the World

05/30/2019, 2:45 PM - 3:30 PM


Book markets in the United States, United Kingdom, and across Europe have much in common, from the challenges of online commerce to bestseller lists dominated by authors with internationally-recognized brands. Of course, national differences remain in spite of globalization. Apart from cultural preferences and languages, price discounting, which is a feature of US and UK markets that's taken for granted, is forbidden by law in France, Germany and elsewhere.

A panel of journalists and analysts who cover national and international book markets will share insights and explore the room for common ground in book publishing.

Featured guest speakers include Fabrice Piault, Livres Hebdo (France); Andrew Albanese, Publishers Weekly (US); Javier Celaya, (Spain); Dana Beth Weinberg, Queens College-CUNY (US), and Porter Anderson, Publishing Perspectives (US). Moderator: Christopher Kenneally, Copyright Clearance Center.
