Agents & Authors: New York City 2014

Jofie Ferrari-Adler, a senior editor at Simon & Schuster, leads a conversation with debut authors Mira Jacob and Yelena Akhtiorskaya and agents Jim Rutman of Sterling Lord Literistic and Michelle Tessler of Tessler Literary Agency about the author-agent relationship at the second Poets & Writers Live event this past June in New York City.



 I have seen NO changes in the publishing world of agents and staff represented by

Minorities in this industry, check this out! I call New York publishers the last vestiges

of the elite eastern establishment. No Black books, thus NO Black movies and No nominations

for the Academy Awards, people I don't like using the Race card, but sometimes I have

to play it, because the TRUTH will set you free!
