The meeting topic for November has changed. Local software developer Ted Treanor will be our guest speaker. He will be discussing netGalley.com, a new online community launching in November for authors, publishers, book reviewers, bookstores, and librarians. Under development for the last six years, this new site will use the latest Web technology to allow publishers to build a network of reviewers, bookstore buyers, and librarians who want to receive their galleys in digital or print form.
Treanor has worked with a wide variety of publishers, authors, reviewers, librarians, and bookstore owners to help form a web service that will provide a more effective way to deliver galleys to reviewers and market books to stores and libraries. Don't miss our last meeting of 2006 at the Good Shepherd Center, 4 pm to 6 pm, on Nov. 16.
