This evening we will honour longtime Editors BC member and editor extraordinaire Nancy Flight, who retired from her full-time role as associate publisher of Greystone Books on October 16, 2017—forty-five years to the day after she started her first job in book publishing in San Francisco.
Throughout her career as a highly respected and award-winning editor, Nancy made significant contributions to the editing profession and to our national association and local branch. We’re delighted she will be with us on November 15 so we can thank her in person.
As part of the evening’s program, a panel of other longtime members—Peter Colenbrander, Ann-Marie Metten, Peter Moskos, and Ruth Wilson—will share stories about the founding and development of Editors BC, the professionalization of editing, and the strong leadership and spirit of volunteerism exemplified by people like Nancy. The evening is sure to inspire and invigorate all of us to do our best work as we lead the editing profession and Editors BC into the future.
BONUS! Enter the draw at the meeting for a special prize.
