Walt Mossberg scheduled to keynote Digital Book World 2018

NASHVILLE, Tenn. – November 27, 2017 – Walt Mossberg will deliver the opening keynote for Digital Book World 2018, the morning of Tuesday, October 2.

His talk will kick off the longstanding and influential event, which provides thought leadership, best practices, and the gathering of community for the wide world of publishing.

“There simply is no one better equipped to deliver the message the publishing industry needs to hear today,” remarked Score Publishing CEO Bradley Metrock. “Publishing needs technology, technology needs publishing, and Walt Mossberg’s legendary career was built on the successful combination of both over a sustained period of time.”

Mossberg is widely credited with pioneering the modern, consumer-focused technology review and commentary. He is in the process of writing a book, about the combination of breakthrough technology and the people who brought it to us, which will capstone his career. This book will be published by St. Martin’s Press in 2019.

“Humankind relies on storytelling, and technology and publishing now work together to deliver it,” Mossberg commented. “I am very much looking forward to discussing this at Digital Book World.”

Digital Book World will be held October 2-4, 2018, in Nashville, Tennessee.
