Publishers' Role: 'Giving Voice to a Range of Opinions and Viewpoints'

Shelf Awareness

Carolyn Reidy
"As we head into 2017, we can expect that our civic and cultural life will remain turbulent. In these times it is especially important to remember that as publishers we will always endeavor to give voice to a wide range of opinions and divergent viewpoints. We publish for many different and frequently conflicting audiences, and must be fully cognizant of our responsibility to resist censorship and stand unequivocally for freedom of speech, no matter how difficult that might be at times."

--Carolyn Reidy, president and CEO of Simon & Schuster, in her "year-end message" to S&S staff around the world.
