Digital Book World to Launch Publishing Hall of Fame;

DBW Takes Place Oct. 1 – 4, Nashville

DBW 2018 Gather as Many as 1,000 Leaders from Publishing and Technology

NASHVILLE, Tenn. (Sept. 7, 2018) – As part of the 2018 Digital Book World – the gathering of the wide world of publishing – two industry veterans will be the first to be inducted into the new Publishing Hall of Fame. Digital Book World will take place Oct. 2-4 in Nashville, Tenn. at the Music City Center. The conference and expo will gather publishers large and small, traditional and untraditional, and the technology companies which serve all of them. Conference details and registration are available at DigitalBookWorld.com.


The first inductee into the Publishing Hall of Fame is Marie Dutton Brown, the iconic editor and literary agent who successfully championed diversity in publishing over the course of her 50-year career.



“Beginning her career at Doubleday, Marie Dutton Brown dealt with persistent racism directed at both her and her work, but she persevered in championing African-American literature and identity,” said Bradley Metrock, DBW 2018 executive producer and the CEO of Score Publishing. “In a new era defined by increased social awareness of marginalized voices and perspectives, Brown stands tall as a trailblazer, helping move the entire industry in a more progressive and accepting direction.”





Marie is my friend and mentor, so this is a particularly cool honor 🙂
