Rose FoxAndrew AlbaneseLibraries take the spotlight this week, as PW’s upcoming issue is the ALA midwinter preview. “Monday’s issue will have 15 pages dedicated to libraries—and to no one’s surprise, e-books are part of that package,” Andrew Albanese tells CCC’s Chris Kenneally, noting that Penguin’s announcement that it has pulled its frontlist e-book titles from its library lending program is frustrating librarians and their patrons.

Rose Fox’s review of the coming week’s reviews looks back to the 1940s with praise for Pogo, Volume 1 of the Complete Syndicated Comic Strips, covering Walt Kelly’s denizens of the Okefenokee Swamp.

Every Friday, CCC’s “Beyond the Book” speaks with the editors and reporters of “Publishers Weekly” for an early look at the news that publishers, editors, authors, agents and librarians will be talking about when they return to work on Monday.
