March meeting

Publishing Trends in 2023 and What to Watch – Jane Friedman
It’s often said that the pandemic has accelerated changes already underway in business, and that’s proven especially true for book publishing. Even though the industry is often considered slow and not as susceptible to technological change (and print just enjoyed its most robust sales in more than a decade), it’s been a transformative time for the business of books. Jane Friedman will discuss current book sales trends in the United States, the rise of BookTok and its importance to book sales, the DOJ vs PRH suit and what we can take away from the 2022 trial, trends in digital audio, and more.
