Episode 119: The Ethics of Book Reviewing

(Stephen Burt, Brian Evenson, Karen Long, Eric Lorberer, Rusty Morrison) The ethical boundaries of book reviewing in an age when everyone has "friended" everyone else can be fuzzy.

This panel, made up of authors, reviewers, and small press publishers, will grapple with the dilemmas of the current world of book reviewing, discuss ways out of the coterie vs. "objective" binary, and hash out some ideas to make reviewing more transparent, honest, and useful in the future.
