HachetteSpeakersBureau.com features authors from HBG's numerous imprints - Grand Central Publishing, Little, Brown and Company, Little, Brown Books for Young Readers, Business Plus, Springboard, Twelve, FaithWords, and Center Street.
The launch of the Hachette Speakers Bureau was announced by David Young, Chairman and CEO of Hachette Book Group, and Don Epstein, Founder and CEO of Greater Talent Network. Young said, "I couldn't be more pleased to be working with GTN in this endeavor- we want to establish new points of connection with consumers, and the speakers bureau will help us achieve that goal. The GTN team's excellent reputation in the industry and deep knowledge of the marketplace will make HSB a superb vehicle for our authors."
Don Epstein added, "We are eager to introduce HSB as an invaluable new resource for robust, content-focused programs. Access to HSB's impressive lineup of authors will bring a new dynamic of informative programming to the lecture industry. We are delighted to be involved in this exciting collaboration."
The authors participating in the Hachette Speakers Bureau represent the diversity and excellence Hachette Book Group is known for, and the list of authors will grow over time.
