Christian publishers have suffered significantly during the COVID crisis as book supply channels have been disrupted and church life has focused on maintenance rather than mission. What lessons can publishers learn to emerge stronger from the crisis, ready to face the New Normal of life beyond the Virus? Join Tim Thornborough, publishing director of The Good Book Company
, for an interactive hour about marketing Christian books. We promise an energizing and encouraging hour of discovery and fellowship as we go back to first principles of marketing to discover the way forward.
