I'm delighted to announce that as part of our continuing Publishing Point CEO Interview series, David Young, the Chairman and CEO of the Hachette Book Group, will be interviewed in midtown Manhattan on January 27th (mingling starts at 12:00pm; interview at 12:30pm). RSVPs for this event will open up on Wednesday, December 15th at 10:00am on Meetup
. David will be interviewed by Michael Healy, Executive Director of the Book Rights Registry, who is back by popular demand. Previous CEOs in The Publishing Point CEO Series have included John Sargent, CEO of Macmillan, and Tim O'Reilly, CEO of O'Reilly Media. Many thanks to Bowker Identifier Services
for sponsoring the upcoming interview.
In the meantime, I am looking forward to seeing those of you who signed up to hear Scott Heiferman, the founder of Meetup, this coming Tuesday, December 14th. He'll be discussing how books can spark community (specifically, local community everywhere) in fresh new ways -- and why that's powerful for authors and publishers. If you cannot come, please change your RSVP so that others can go in your place. If you're interested in coming and have not RSVPd, I invite you to join the waiting list here on Meetup
, which often results in a spot.
