The Future of Book Reportage Returns!

There’s no doubt that book reportage is a different animal now that it was only a couple of years ago. Print coverage has shrunk, the value of online coverage is uncertain, and eBooks are everywhere, above and below the radar.

On Thursday, February 25th, at 7 p.m. in the Melville House Bookstore this eBookNewser editor will join a panel of journalists and reviewers to discuss “the future of book reportage.” The panel includes: Laura Miller (Salon.com), Michael Miller (Time Out New York), Jason Boog (GalleyCat), and Sara Nelson (O, the Oprah magazine). Hope you can come by.

Here’s more from the site: “With both the book industry and the journalism industry in historic tumult, whither literary journalism? Where will people read about books and authors and publishers in the future? Will reviews remain important? Will blogs play a more or less important role? Will reportage of industry trends and business developments improve or worsen? What kind of journalism will impact how people hear about books, and where they buy them?”
