The Covid-19 crisis has had huge impacts across every industry, and publishing is no exception, with release dates delayed, publishing professionals furloughed, and the economic crisis leaving book buyers with less cash in their wallets. It also hasn’t happened in isolation—existing problems from climate change to media consolidation were already creating challenges.

Our panel discusses the crisis, the industry’s response and the innovations that are arising from this difficult time. Fatima Albreiki is a writer, critic and researcher from the UAE, and the founder of Sama House for Publishing, Production and Distribution. Talal Salim Alsaabri is an Emirati publisher and founder of Jumeira Publishing House.
