Dear Colleagues and Graduate Students,

I hope you enjoyed your winter break. Welcome back to Pace University. We have 108 students enrolled in the Pace Publishing program in the Spring 2014 semester. The faculty and staff look forward to working with you and assisting you this term.

Please mark your calendars for the following publishing events.  Cevin Breyerman will give his spring semester lecture as David Pecker Visiting Professor on Thursday, May 1, 2014. Mr. Breyerman is Publisher and Vice President of Publisher’s Weekly Magazine (www.publishersweekly.com) and will serve as David J. Pecker Visiting Professor for the 2013-14 academic year. His lecture will take place at 163 William Street, 18th floor at the downtown NYC campus from 6-8pm. He will discuss issues currently facing the publishing industry. Refreshments will be served.

Another major event and date to place on your calendar is Wednesday, April 9, 2014. At that time the Pace University Publishing Department will host the third Student/Alumni Appreciation Dinner that will celebrate student excellence. The Student Appreciation Dinner will be held at 163 William Street, 18th floor from 6 to 8pm. The dinner gives us opportunity to recognize student and alumni achievement and   the uniqueness of our publishing students and graduates. Please make every effort to attend both events.
