Audio from Laura J. Miller’s BookExpo appearance

jacket imageAt one of the panel presentations at BookExpo America, the annual book publishing trade show, Publishers Weekly editor-in-chief Sara Nelson interviewed Laura J. Miller, author of Reluctant Capitalists: Bookselling and the Culture of Consumption. Miller responded to questions from Nelson and the audience on the history of bookselling, the conflict between chain and independent bookstores, and her sense of where the industry is headed.
The audio of the discussion is available on a BookExpo site that collects podcasts from the show.
Miller earlier wrote an essay for our blog. We also have an excerpt from her book.
