NBCC Campaign to Save Book Reviews
No, it isn’t a rumor that the book review sections of newspapers in LA, Chicago, Atlanta, Dallas, San Francisco, and more are being axed or shrunk. The National Book Critics Circle (NBCC) are beating their keyboards into swords and have launched a campaign to save book reviews. Their efforts are gaining momentum on the Web this week:
The New Book Burning, Art Winslow in Huffington Post
Dramatic Changes in Newspaper Book Reviews, Craig Teicher in Publishers Weekly
NBCC’s campaign series, featuring book review editors and writers on its blog Critical Mass.
