Books, Books, Books

Today was the first day of the BEA! Actually, not precisely today, since it's after midnight, but I'm in my own time zone anyway. Today was the day when the Javits Center was still preparing for the tide, so, not much going on, except experts telling us what hot new internet feature Silicon Valley is offering us this year. Evidently, this year's hot new thing is Pinterest. It is especially liked and used by women, which is good for the publishing industry, because we are, by and large, women. The next three days will consist of IT- and SEO-guys telling us the difference between Epub3 and htlm5.

Other than that, I am looking forward to meeting the widow of Aleksandr Solzhenitsyn, Stephen Colbert, Neil Young, and Colin Robertson, whose phone number I have lost, so I sure hope he is there. There is also a new book on Starbucks, as well as one on the Penn State scandal.

Other than that, we had a great event in May in Los Angeles introducing the new Berlinica book The Berlin Wall Today, at the Wende Museum with Justinian Jampol, Michael Cramer, Cristina Cuevas- Wolf, and the Consul, Wolfgang Drautz, who has left for Berlin by now. Here are two pictures.

Now the newest update on Mark Twain: The book is nearly none, but not completely. I‘m preparing the second proof. There are still some rights issues, and also, three or four pictures are missing. But it will be a great book! I'm going to post some pictures as soon as I've figured out how to use Pinterest.
