NEW YORK, March 22, 2011 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- The Wall Street Journal today announced plans for Ideas Market, a new author and editor conversation series from the editors of WSJ Weekend's Review section. Aimed to stimulate ideas and discussion about authors and books selected by the editors of Review, the bi-monthly talks will be held in New York City at The New York Public Library.





For the first Ideas Market event, scheduled for Tues., March 29, Wall Street Journal senior deputy managing editor Michael Miller will sit down with Amy Chua, author of "Battle Hymn of the Tiger Mother," and her husband Jed Rubenfeld, author of the forthcoming novel "The Death Instinct." Together they will resume a conversation started after the extraordinary response to the January excerpt from Ms. Chua's book, entitled "Why Chinese Mothers Are Superior."

Wall Street Journal managing editor Robert Thomson will introduce the discussion and the evening's participants. Following the conversation, Mr. Miller will open up the discussion to an invitation-only audience and respond to questions solicited in advance via WSJ.com ( http://on.wsj.com/hK63LA ).

Five bi-monthly dates are planned beginning with the March 29 debut and continuing in May, July and September. Future talks will be open to Journal subscribers. Video from Ideas Market will be featured on WSJ.com following each event.
