Some may dream of seeing their name in lights, but many of us would be happy with plain black and white. Join the Leadership and Management Division as we explore the challenges and rewards of writing for publication. Speaker Bruce Rosenstein, Managing Editor of Leader to Leader, will address working with a traditional publisher to produce his two books. And even if you don’t think you have a book in you, you could consider writing articles for the library trade press, which will be covered by Stuart Hale, Senior Writer and Editor of SLA’s Information Outlook.
