There is more great literary content out there than ever—but it is scattered across the Internet. Literary Hub will bring it together in one place, a go-to daily site for all the news, ideas, and richness of contemporary literary life. Drawn from a cross-section of the best in literary publishing, Literary Hub will post original features from partners and contributors: essays, excerpts, interviews, bookstore profiles, and more.

Literary Hub’s founding partners Morgan Entrekin and Andy Hunter, along with editor Jonny Diamond, will introduce Literary Hub to ABA members and discuss the growing digital vitality of independent bookstores. There is a thriving literary conversation happening online right now—between readers, writers, and booksellers—and Literary Hub seeks to bring those voices to a wider, book-buying audience.

  • Morgan Entrekin, Founder of Literary Hub and Publisher and President of Grove/Atlantic
  • Andy Hunter, Co-Founder of Literary Hub, Founder of Electric Literature, and Publisher of Black Balloon Publishing
  • Jonny Diamond, Editor of Literary Hub and Founding Editor of The L Magazine and Brooklyn Magazine
  • John Evans, DIESEL, A Bookstore (Oakland, CA) (Moderator)
