The publisher has created scores of New York Times bestsellers, hundreds of national bestsellers, and #1 selling titles in perennial categories. Sourcebooks today has over 140 employees, publishes more than 350 new titles each year, and is proud to be one of the top book publishers in America.

An inspiring and passionate presenter, Dominique will speak about innovation in publishing, the future of book publishing and entrepreneurship, and women in the publishing industry.
