New technology and the web is changing how we consume literature. Books aren’t always packaged between covers these days and bookstores are no longer the only place to buy books. What does that mean for publishing? Is there a revolution in the works? Some people think there should be and that’s what this panel is all about. Join the discussion:

Call to action from Monique: I’m going to organize a panel in Vancouver. We’re going to create a model for publishing and marketing books. We’re going to move forward as an industry. Leaders will be identified. Roles will be assigned. If you’re not open to totally change everything you’re doing, then you are not ready for this revolution. Don’t come.
