Around The Web: The Global Pandemic, Publishing Industry and Literary Easter Eggs

Hello again, readers! Those of you who regularly follow publishing news will know that the industry is experiencing a lot of change currently. So this week, I’m sharing a few stories that explain what’s going on, including a piece from the New York Times about staff changes and another that focuses on the challenges Canadian publishers are facing. I’ve also got a post about how COVID-19 has changed book launches. But it’s not all serious, I’ve also got a fun look at literary Easter eggs.
