Is Dan Brown the Savior of the Publishing World?

Can the follow up to the "Da Vinci Code" turnaround an economic slump?

Wednesday, September 09, 2009

After four years of delay, next Tuesday will see the release of the book "The Lost Symbol," writer Dan Brown's much anticipated follow-up to the "Da Vinci Code." The novel will continue the main story of character Robert Langdon and once again he'll be solving a mystery steeped in art and history this time [SPOILER ALERT!] in Washington, D.C. We speak to Motoko Rich, who covers publishing for our partner the New York Times, about how the release of this book is being seen as a make-or-break moment for the publishing industry during an economic recession.

You can read Motoko Rich's story, "Booksellers anticipate a big week," in the Times.
