Join us for a panel discussion on trends in electronic publishing with Dominique Raccah, Libby Fischer Hellmann, and Kelly Griffin.

Raccah is the CEO & publisher of Sourcebooks, a company she founded in 1987 that is now the country’s largest woman-owned trade book publishing company. Sourcebooks is known for its innovative e-books and mixed-media titles. She is the first-ever woman co-chair of the Book Industry Study Group, which recently released a national survey on the state of the book industry.

Hellmann
is an award-winning author of seven crime-thriller novels, including the recent Set the Night on Fire. All her work is available digitally, and some of her books have been published first as e-books without print versions, including Toxicity and The Last Page (co-written with David Walker).

Griffin is a member of the Chicago Public Library’s Collections Development Division, where she helps to develop the library’s e-book collection.
