Tuesday, July 27th, 6:00-7:00 p.m. ET
Free for WMG members only
Have you missed the exchange of ideas, industry information, pop culture recommendations, random conversations about topical events, and general camaraderie that used to happen in the “before times” at the water cooler, in front of the restroom sink, and in the lively chatter before the start of a WMG event? As we optimistically look forward to more in-person communication, we could all use a little TLC, so come Talk, Listen, and Connect! Join WMG board member Jennifer Perry for an hour of chit-chat about whatever you want to discuss the day we meet, with an emphasis on current media events and media buzz. Maybe it’s the virtual nature of book fairs or the newest best sellers or the rise of TikTok as a marketing platform for books. Or perhaps you've been following how media companies are responding in different ways to the need to increase diverse voices. Or you can't wait to share thoughts about book-based TV series. Jennifer will have a short list of suggested topics to jumpstart the meet-up, and welcomes and encourages your ideas, too. jennifer's area of special interest is Publishing, but members from all areas of media are very encouraged to attend. No homework necessary: just a willingness to share ideas and opinions about anything you’d like to discuss with a group. Our very own WMG brand of TLC!
