Saturday, July 7, 2007.

Dana GoldbergThis episode is part of our Publishers Showcase, a special series of interviews with children’s book publishers, which we are running during the weeks of July 2 and July 9 2007.

In 1975 the movie Jaws scared us out of the ocean, the Red Sox lost the World Series and Andrei Sakharov won the Nobel Peace Prize.

Mark speaks with Dana Goldberg about the unique vision and staying power of Children’s Book Press. You can learn more about Children’s Book Press by visiting their website, childrensbookpress.org.
