Raccah will discuss her perspective of the future of the book publishing industry, her outlook on the impact of digital publishing and important advice for authors when crafting and writing their books.
She will also inform listeners about the Book Industry Study Group, its efforts to navigate the industry changes that are affecting the supply chain and the constant challenge that publishers face in getting the right book at the right time into the right consumer’s hands for them to read and enjoy.
