Экс-президент HarperCollins открывает электронное издательство

Jane Friedman Starts Open Road Integrated Media, an E-Book Company - NYTimes.com

Sixteen months after stepping down as president and chief executive of HarperCollins Publishers Worldwide, Jane Friedman has formed a new company that will republish old titles by big-name authors including William Styron, Iris Murdoch and Pat Conroy in electronic form.
Together with Jeffrey Sharp, a film producer of features including “Boys Don’t Cry” and “You Can Count on Me,” Ms. Friedman, 64, has founded Open Road Integrated Media to focus almost exclusively on digital publishing. The company will also seek new authors willing to be published in the electronic format first.
