Meeting authors

from Press News, posted 03/28/2015 - 20:57

One of the joys of attending conferences is the chance to meet our authors. Such has been the case here at the AAS in Chicago where yesterday Elisabeth Engebretsen passed by to say hello and do her bit to promote Queer/Tongzhi China, a fabulous volume edited by Elisabeth together with William F. Schroeder. It was really good to touch bases with her; so much more satisfying than e-mail.

Here Elisabeth holds up a promotional booklet comprising the prelims and first chapter of the book. (Typesetting of the volume is well advanced and we expect the book out in May as planned.)

Of course, conferences are also great places to meet new authors. There's been a fair bit of that, too, in Chicago.

All in all, we're not complaining!
