Wix Lounge, a free co-working and event space in NYC, will be hosting an excellent event next week on Tuesday, January 15th, from 7 – 9 PM. The NY Independent Publishing meetup is presenting “Designing the Bestseller,” a presentation on what makes a truly great book cover design. This will be a two-hour event, which will include a demo from Wix on their website software, followed by a panel discussion on cover design. Three accomplished publishing art directors will share their experiences:
- Kirk Benshoff (Love Minus Eighty, Staff Art Director at Orbit Books and Yen Press)
- Lynn Buckley (On the Noodle Road, The Preppy Cookbook, The Corrections)
- Robin Bilardello (Flyaway, Shutter Island, Lake Overturn)
This event is perfect for anyone who wants to learn more about the book cover process, including authors, designers, and publishing pros. A $5 RSVP confirmation charge will cover wine, coffee, and snacks, and time at the end will be set aside for meeting your fellow book lovers.
