Simon & Schuster; New York Times Book Review added to Digital Book World 2018 program
We're very pleased to announce two phenomenal additions to the Digital Book World 2018 program made just in the past week:
Pamela Paul, Editor of the New York Times Book Review, will give a plenary session at Digital Book World 2018. Within its very visible role as part trend-setter and part data analyst, the NYT Book Review has a unique vantage point on trade publishing and the entire world of publishing in general. Pamela Paul is also the host of the popular weekly podcast Inside The New York Times Book Review. We can't wait to have her join us as part of the DBW 2018 program.
Kevin Hanson, President and Publisher of Simon & Schuster Canada, joins forces with Suzanne Norman (of Simon Fraser University) to deliver a talk on how the publishing industry can collaborate effectively with academia to train the future of publishing.
From co-teaching arrangements to creating new types of curriculum to internships and placements and more, this session (which will live within our Education Book World breakout track) will speak to how publishers, of all shapes and sizes and types, can work effectively with academic institutions to the mutual benefit of both.
Digital Book World 2018 continues to shape up well, as we pursue becoming what one outlet called us: "The Super Bowl of Publishing." Having Simon & Schuster, as well as the New York Times Book Review, join us puts us that much closer to making this a reality.
