In Part One of our Forum on Publishing in an Age of Upheaval, editor/critic/author John Freeman and novelist Heather O’Neill will engage in a wide-ranging discussion of literary magazine publishing and editing, including issues of design and marketing. Ms O’Neill will read from and sign copies of her just-released novel, The Lonely Hearts Hotel (Riverhead). Freeman will also be signing copies of Freeman’s, the new literary anthology he edits, and his collection of interviews with contemporary writers, How to Read a Novelist.

Lullabies for Little Criminals, her debut novel, was published in 2006 to international critical acclaim and shortlisted for the Orange Prize for Fiction. Born and raised in Montreal, O’Neill lives there today with her daughter.
