Capstone Launches Web Video Series

Publishing house Capstone has launched a new video series in which its editorial department discusses books.

The first episode is called Capstone Live With Michael Dahl! and features Capstone’s Fiction Editorial Director Michael Dahl sharing his Top 5 picks from the publisher’s Fall 2014 nonfiction list. We’ve embedded the video above for you to check out.

The publisher will release a new video every month of the school year. A future episode will feature Dahl discussing his Top 5 Fiction picks. Another will focus on graphic novels.

Capstone is not the first publisher to showcase editors talking about books on video. Simon & Schuster recently launched a new Behind the Book series.
