Lunchbox/Soapbox: Tim Coronel: What Next for the Australian Publishing Industry?
Five years ago, the tone of discussion about the book industry shifted from ‘confidence’ to ‘crisis’, as online shopping and the emergence of e-books shook up the established ways of doing business.
In this Lunchbox/Soapbox event, we partner with the Small Press Underground Networking Community to present Tim Coronel – bookseller, editor, journalist and publisher – as he discusses the book industry’s rapid, perhaps desperate, transition. He’ll explain how the involvement of massive and powerful international technology businesses such as Amazon, Apple and Google has changed the publishing and bookselling landscape forever.
He also looks, with a positive eye, to the Australian publishing future.
