STOP THE PRESSES. PUT DOWN WHAT YOU’RE READING AND PICK UP REBECCA WANZO THERE AT THE TOP.
I had the pleasure of hearing her speak at the SCMS conference this past spring, and I’ve been waiting for this piece like you would not believe. There’s some great sounding stuff in here, all worth your time, but please, please read Wanzo. She’s really worth it.
