Publishers Weekly and Newmarket Launch Screening Program

By LJ Staff

Publishers Weekly is joining forces with Newmarket Press to host a series of film screenings for PW subscribers across the country. All selected films will be linked to tie-in titles released by Newmarket in either its signature screenplay line or more elaborate photo-rich making of books. Newmarket told LJ that the series will "kick off with advance screenings of The Namesake in Boston, Chicago, Los Angeles, New York, and San Francisco on February 28." Directed by Mira Nair (Monsoon Wedding, Salaam Bombay!), the film adaptation of Jhumpa Lahiri’s bestselling novel will be released in select theaters by Fox Searchlight on March 9. PW and its electronic newsletter PW Daily will hype the screenings weeks in advance and provide subscribers with info on how to register for the showings at PublishersWeekly.com.
