With educational sessions organized into three distinct levels—beginner, more experienced and poised for growth—independent book publishers ranging from newbies to seasoned veterans gathered at The Roosevelt Hotel in New York City, May 24-25, to attend the 26th-annual Independent Book Publishers Association (IBPA) Publishing University.

"Rather than organizing the event by specific tracks such as marketing, promotion, finance, etc., the more than 20 break-out sessions instead featured topics custom-tailored for publishers in three stages of their careers," said Kichler.
