From Publishers Weekly: “This year we took our annual slugfest to the pub underneath our new office and came up with a list of the year's top 100 books that could be our best ever." VIDA takes a look at the outcome of PW's "slugfest" and considers the results in light of last year's breakdown. Cheers!
This month we take a look at the Academy Awards given between 1995 - 2010. While we were pleased to find a number of the Academy prizes reflected a gender-balance, the few that reflected what should be the “old” balance, presented new questions to consider.
This month, we counted the number of books reviewed by authors’ gender in the 2010 issues of Publishers Weekly (through the August 23 issue). We hope you'll join us in wondering aloud what these numbers can tell us about current publishing trends.
