Recap and Photos: September Casual Networking Event

Maybe it was just the heat wave, but this month’s Casual Networking Event was superbly attended. A grand total of 25 networkers gathered in the cool basement of the Back Bay Social Club to meet their fellow book lovers. As one attendee said, “It really was casual!”

Who were we? Houghton Mifflin Harcourt and Pearson led the pack with six employees each. Next, representatives from ebook retailer Bookbub, Jones & Bartlett Learning, freelance editors, the American Heart Association journal, local vendor Neenah Paper, and Beacon Press. And finally, we also chatted with professionals and interns from Pearson Custom Publishing, Harvard Education Publishing Group, and the MIT Press.
