Select Editions around the world

Right as we're launching this blog in the United States, 24 editors from 17 different editions around the world are getting together to compare notes and plan for the future. The meeting is in Prague, and the editors are discussing everything from how they choose books to how they do their translations and design their jackets.

One of the biggest items on the agenda, not surprisingly, is communicating with readers via the internet. And of course, the number one form for this communication is blogging. Sweden was one of the first Select Editions offices to launch their blog. Check it out (although it might help if you know how to read Swedish).
