Cynthia Liebow is daughter of Caxtonian Eli Liebow, known for his ground-breaking biography of Dr. Joseph Bell (on whom Sherlock Holmes was based). Cynthia founded her own publishing house, Les Editions Baker Street, in 2007. In her job of finding and buying French rights to foreign books (primarily British and American), Cynthia has formed close relationships with Harold Pinter, Antonia Fraser, Arthur Miller, Shimon Peres, Hillary Clinton, Balthus and Queen Noor to name a few. Hear also how publishers find their authors, about the game of "stealing" authors, the genius needed to predict which foreign book will "work" in France and then about publishing's most fun, most creative and most exhausting aspect: promotion. Join us as Cynthia Liebow walks us through her fascinating career.
