Sourcebooks Publisher and CEO Dominique Raccah made NewCity’s Lit 50 2015, a list of the 50 greatest contributors to Chicago’s vibrant literary scene!
“This year’s list includes indie-bookstore owners, booksellers, publishers, editors, chairs and directors of creative writing programs, literacy advocates, library leaders, execs at major literary foundations, organizers of festivals, conferences, live lit productions and salons. All of the individuals on this list contribute significantly—whether they help to get books in readers’ hands, excite the next generation in literary arts, afford writers opportunities to publish, provide storytellers a stage to share their tales, or create environments where writers can make the right connections or just talk shop.”
“Behind all of the innovation is fundamentally our desire to create a more expansive future for readers, authors and book publishing,” Raccah said.
Raccah is featured at #3, behind Elizabeth Taylor, Chicago Tribune’s literary editor, and Robert Polito, president of the Poetry Foundation. It’s a great honor to be included and the Chicago literary scene is a community that Sourcebooks is proud to be a part of.
