- One of the more interesting, forward-looking publishing industry events is FutureBook, held in London and hosted by UK’s The Bookseller. This year, it was programmed in hybrid fashion, with both in-person and online attendance and a mix of in-person, recorded, and live streaming sessions.A recorded conversation with the CEO of Penguin Random House kicked off FutureBook, and the first question was (of course) about the DOJ’s case against Penguin Random House. We have highlights of his response here, along with other takeaways from the show.
- The audiobook wars heat up. Storytel and Spotify have made significant acquisitions that give them both a meaningful presence in the US audiobook market.
