A peak inside the business book awards and industry appreciation event we hosted this year in New York City, honoring those in the publishing industry whose work makes our work possible.

Two weeks ago, we ventured to New York City to celebrate the people whose work makes the work we do here in Milwaukee possible, and the books and ideas they brought into the world in 2019. 

Here are some scenes from the party.


Two awards were announced at the event. The 2019 Porchlight Business Book of the Year was awarded to Rana Foroohar's Don't Be Evil: How Big Tech Betrayed Its Founding Principles—and All of Us, and the Jack Covert Award for Contribution to the Business Book Industry went to publicist Mark Fortier. 



You can see more photos from the event on our Facebook page.

Thank you again to everyone who attended, and to all those who bring great books into the world.

About Dylan Schleicher

Dylan Schleicher has been a part of Porchlight since 2003. After beginning in shipping and receiving, he moved through customer service (with some accounting on the side) before entering into his current, highly elliptical orbit of duties overseeing the marketing and editorial aspects of the company. Outside of work, you’ll find him volunteering or playing basketball at his kids’ school, catching the weekly summer concert at the Washington Park Bandshell, or strolling through one of the many other parks or green spaces around his home in Milwaukee (most likely his own gardens). He lives with his wife and two children in the Washington Heights neighborhood on Milwaukee's West Side.
