Melville House Future of Book Reportage Discussion Postponed

curleybook.jpgIn a twist of fate that makes this GalleyCat editor wonder what the snow gods have against literary criticism, the Melville House Bookstore panel discussion on “the future of book reportage” has been postponed by blizzard-like conditions–for the second time in a row!

Never fear, the event will be rescheduled, and we’ll join some of publishing’s brightest minds–trying to figure out how to improve our literary coverage at GalleyCat Reviews. The panel will include: Laura Miller (Salon.com), Michael Miller (Time Out New York), Craig Morgan Teicher (eBookNewser), and Sara Nelson (O, the Oprah magazine).

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?”
