Join André Schiffrin in conversation with Keith Gessen on Schiffrin’s career in publishing, the death of the bookstore (and possible solutions), and pressure created by conglomerates. Schiffrin, who has been at the forefront of publishing for over forty years, will discuss his search for alternative publishing models, and how today’s publishing moment feels different from those of the past.  (Via N+1)

No word if Keith or André plan to bring up Gessen’s 2008 novel, All the Sad Young Literary Men, which one Amazon customer said was “so fucking bad, it may have been the direct reason print is dying.”
