Publishing Executive – Three Steps to Better Industry Health, from a Display Manufacturer

Linda_Ruth_Header

John Mennell is the founder and impassioned spokesperson for Magazine Literacy, and from time to time I get calls from people who are inspired by his fervor to get involved in any way possible. Mennell’s got initiatives with the homeless, the unemployed, and Native American communities; he’s got magazines shipping to the Arctic Circle and to cooking schools throughout the country.

Thank you Linda and Doug for lighting a torch and passing it to kindred colleagues throughout the the magazine publishing supply chain. ┬áMagazines are especially powerful for literacy. ┬áTo reach millions of at-risk readers we need to engage every person and every company in the industry – from the mill to the printer to the publisher and consumer, and from the mailroom to the board room.
