Snow Day Sadness: Melville House Bookstore Panel Postponed

curleybook.jpgThis GalleyCat editor had been watching weather reports with great trepidation all week. We are sad to announce that the Future of Book Reportage panel discussion scheduled for tonight at 7 p.m. in the Melville House Bookstore has been postponed.

The new date will be announced soon. At the panel, this GalleyCat editor will join journalists and reviewers to discuss “the future of book reportage.” The panel includes: Laura Miller (Salon.com), Michael Miller (Time Out New York), Craig Morgan Teicher (eBookNewser), and John Mutter (Shelf Awareness)

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?”
