News & Opinion: The 2017 800-CEO-READ Business Books Awards and Industry Party

By: Dylan Schleicher @ 8:54 AM – Filed under: Publishing Industry, The Company

We love our home here in Wisconsin, but when we announce the winner of our annual business book award, there is really no other place to do it than New York City. It is where nearly everyone in our industry works, so we head out every January to throw an industry party on a Thursday night, ply with free drink those who imbibe, and celebrate the best books of the year and everyone who brought them to life. As you may be able to glean from the photos below, this year was one of the best parties yet.  You can see more photos on our Facebook page.

Congratulations to the winners, and thank you to everyone who attended.
