While some see this as a time filled with change and uncertainty, others celebrate new markets, extraordinary sales, artistic growth, and cross-media potential. Book Summit 2013, Shake, Rattle & Roll, offers practical workshops and hard numbers alongside theory, prognostication, and reflection from publishing professionals from Canada, the U.S., and the U.K.

New York Times Magazine Ethicist
Chuck Klosterman is the New York Times-bestselling author of seven books, including Sex,
Drugs, and Cocoa Puffs; Eating the Dinosaur; and The Visible Man. He has written for GQ,
Esquire, The New York Times Magazine, Spin, The Washington Post, The Guardian, The Believer,
A.V. Club, and ESPN, and he now writes about sports and pop culture for Grantland.com. His
first book, Fargo Rock City, was published to immediate acclaim in 2001.
Klosterman is the new ethicist for the New York Times Magazine, where he fearlessly tackles a broad range of moral conundrums and daily ethics. His keynote address for Book Summit combines his experiences as a writer, his reflections on pop culture and publishing, and his musings about the thorny ethical issues the book world has had to confront in recent years.
Klosterman's newest book, I Wear the Black Hat, will be released this July.
