Berkman Luncheon Series
Amazons, Witches, and Critics – A Liberated Novelist Asks, “Now What?”
Brad Abruzzi, Berkman Center Fellow
Berkman Fellow and practicing MIT attorney Brad Abruzzi is one of those would-be novelists. Ten weeks ago, without any word of encouragement or assent from Big Publishing, Brad released his novel, New Jersey's Famous Turnpike Witch, on Amazon. And now, for Brad, the age-old question recurs: where are my readers? On Tuesday, July 31, Brad will lead a discussion about self-publication, author independence, and the prospects for a literary culture mediated by reader criticism, rather than publishers' whims.
