  • April 19 Meeting: PW's Claire Kirch



    Claire has been senior correspondent for Publishers Weekly, covering the Midwest for several years. Her articles span a wide range of publishing topics as you can see at

    Claire will talk about her experiences, the changes she’s seen in publishing, and the lessons authors and publishers have learned, which undoubtedly will include the timing of book reviews. Join us on Wednesday, April 19, a week later than our usual meeting night, at Midland Hills.

    We'll also ask our attendees to talk about the mistakes they've made and what they wish they had known when they started in publishing so we can all learn from each other. This is the final meeting of the year since May is our Book Awards Gala (finalists will be announced in mid-April).

    What: Learning from Claire and from each other (What we wish we had known)
    Where: Midland Hills Country Club, 2001 Fulham Ave, Roseville. [map]
    When: April 19, 2017, 7 pm (but come early to network)
    Why: We don't know what we don't know, but we can learn
