June 15, 2017: Book Summit 2017: Publish Well and Prosper

Social and Economic Responsibility in the Book Industry

Thursday, June 15, 2017
Harbourfront Centre – 235 Queens Quay W, Toronto
Book Summit Registration in the Fleck Dance Theatre Lobby – 207 Queens Quay W, Toronto

Presented by the Book and Periodical Council and Humber College
in association with IFOA

While Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) has become increasingly visible, the book publishing industry has long been aware of the inherent importance of books, reading and writing to the world’s well-being. But as Markus Dohle of PRH said to employees, “We ought to do more … to drive positive social, environmental and cultural change …”

Building on last year’s successful “Books Can Change the World,” panel, Publish Well and Prosper will explore the ways our business can do just that: be socially aware and thrive economically. Join us for a day of stimulating and practical discussion about economic and social responsibility in the book business.
