Publisher Peter Conners Discusses BOA and E-books on WXXI-TV

Last week, an interview with Publisher Peter Conners was aired on Need To Know Rochestera television program of Rochester's local WXXI News. Conners, along with the last few bookstore owners in the Rochester area, discuss the movement from print books to e-books, as well as the effects of major chains and websites like Barnes & Noble and Amazon.com. Conners gives insight into how an independent publisher like BOA deals with the e-book trend, and notes that BOA’s sales still come primarily from books in print. He also comments that when BOA books are course-adopted for classrooms, students tend to prefer print over e-book editions. The story begins at the "8:40" time-mark in the video below. http://www.youtube.com/watch?feature=player_embedded&v=eB29LyHxGfI In addition to the television airing, WWXI released the full interview with Conners exclusively on their website as a "Need to Know Rochester Extra." The nearly-25 minute interview provides additional insights into the world of poetry and e-books and how BOA is able to continue as a successful organization. http://www.youtube.com/watch?feature=player_embedded&v=DvCW4ZjryG0 Need To Know Rochester, an award-winning, half-hour weekly news and public affairs program, provides in-depth coverage on community issues that matter to Rochesterians.
