All of us down here in Texas have been thinking about our friends and colleagues in the Northeast over the past few weeks. With so many publishers, independent bookstores, and chains brought to a near halt because of Hurricane Sandy, it’s incredible to think of all the damage one storm can cause. Our prayers are with our colleagues at Publishers Group West in New York, the Perseus Book Group in New York, Boston, and Philadelphia, and those booksellers impacted by the storm. Stay safe, all who are still without power and working to overcome damage to your communities and homes.
The storm of the century, all in the midst of two of the largest book publishers in the universe merging. One crazy month in the world of books and beyond. Mother nature. She is a terrifying and extraordinary lady.
