Woodstock Library Forum: Peter Mayer: A Changing Publishing Scene

Legendary independent publisher Peter Mayer, co-founder (with his father) and President of Overlook Press, will make a rare public appearance in his hometown to help celebrate the Library Forum’s 30th Anniversary. He has seen the myriad changes in publishing up close over the years, and offers a unique perspective on where publishing is headed.

Mayer’s publishing career began at Avon Books, where he became Publisher. He was appointed President of Pocket Books, and then became CEO and Chairman of the Penguin Group, 1978-1997. During his tenure Penguin was the largest English language publisher in the world.

Celebrating 3 decades of good talk! The Longest-Running Cultural and Public Affairs Forum in the Hudson Valley!
