This article focuses on the publishing agenda. Farrar, Straus, & Giroux, New York isn't planning on major changes in its publishing agenda for 2005, but CEO Jonathan Galassi wants to reduce the number of books published next year from about 300 published this year. FSG has been developing its Faber & Faber imprint, which publishes books with a pop culture and media connection. The children's segment, which represents about a third of FSG's business, is expected to publish between 35 and 40 titles in 2005, according to a company spokesperson.
