Letter from Cevin January 2014
Happy New Year! I hope your holidays were fun-filled and happy. I was down in Aruba in the Caribbean for the New Year’s holiday. Turquoise blue water, balmy days spent at the beach, much-needed R&R to get set for 2014.
Here at Publishers Weekly, we’ve been looking ahead, getting ready for 2014, planning for the many exciting events, conferences and features forthcoming.
This month, I hope to see you at ALA Midwinter in Philadelphia, where PW has a booth, and at Winter Institute 9 in Seattle. We’re thrilled to be invited back to participate in the American Bookseller Association WI9. Please do feel free to stop by the consultation station to say hello.
In March, we’ll see you in Indianapolis at PLA
