Kodak Posts Videos from the Future of Book Publishing Roundtable
• While children have access to computers and other electronic devices, they typically prefer the printed book.
• All players in the publishing market need to remain agile and always ready to adapt their business models.
• Publishers will continue to add value and play a critical role in bringing books to the marketplace.
“The bottom line: people will have greater access to books and related content, what, when and however they want it, which should mean more people reading more often,” said Jim Milliot, Editorial Director, Publisher’s Weekly, and moderator of the discussion. “And that certainly bodes well for the future.”
Participating in the roundtable were Craig Bauer, senior vice president of production and manufacturing, Hachette Book Group, a U.S. trade publisher; Larry Bennett, vice president of digital print media, Baker & Taylor, a distributor of books, videos and music products; Jac Garner, president, Webcrafters Inc., a leader in four-color printing and book manufacturing; Jeffrey Matthews, vice president of corporate strategy, Business Development and Investor Relations, Scholastic Corp.; Paul Morgan, global fulfillment manager, Lulu.com, a print-on-demand network for books; Melinda Roberts, author of Mommy Confidential and the Mommyblog.net; Jim Robinson, vice president of operations and administration, Harlequin Enterprises Ltd.; and Liz Scheier, editorial director, Digital Content, Barnes&Noble.com.
