Presented by the Book and Periodical Council and Humber College, in association with IFOA.

While Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) has become increasingly visible, the book publishing industry has long been aware of the inherent importance of books, reading and writing to the world’s well-being. But as Markus Dohle of PRH said to employees, “We ought to do more … to drive positive social, environmental, and cultural change …”

logo-transparentBuilding on last year’s successful “Books Can Change the World,” panel, Publish Well and Prosper will explore the ways our business can do just that: be socially aware and thrive economically. Join us for a day of stimulating and practical discussion about economic and social responsibility in the book business.

For any information, please contact the Book and Periodical Council at publicity@thebpc.ca.
