Booksellers and publishers often see the industry from their own perspectives, but some of your colleagues have had the benefit of working both sides of the business. In this session, booksellers who started their careers in publishing will discuss how the experience has impacted their current career as booksellers, and publishers who had previous bookselling careers will discuss how that experience impacted their approach to publishing.
