'Writers need more government support': publisher Louise Adler
For all the talk about our fractured attention spans and ability to still read books, when a new phenomenon hits the shelves, we crack open the covers.
“If Harry Potter is delivered, what do we see? We see kids who are apparently distractible and distracted with their noses in their books - and they can’t be prised away from reading,” says Adelaide Writers’ Week director Louise Adler.
In this episode, Adler talks all things books and publishing with Good Weekend editor Katrina Strickland. A former CEO of Melbourne University Publishing and one-time publisher-at-large at Hachette, Adler was speaking ahead of her first Adelaide Writers’ Week, which runs from March 4 to 9 in the South Australian capital.
