You’re an Open Book
While the world of writers, illustrators and publishers focus on the craft of the picture book, others must facilitate the discovery of and engagement with the final product.  From parks to parades to pediatricians (and other peculiar occasions and locations), Kirsten Cappy of the children’s literature marketing firm Curious City will talk about the role of picture books in childhood and the role of picture book creators in opening books for children.

12:00-1:30 PM

Everything You Always Wanted to Know
Composed of three picture book authors (Lesley MFA mentors, David Elliott, Susan Goodman, and Michelle Knudsen, who in a previous life worked as an editor) and children’s literature marketing specialist, Kirsten Cappy, this panel should be able to answer just about any question you might have about the writing, production, and selling of picture books.
