Rick WilksThis 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.

A publisher was once asked how someone could start a small children’s book publishing company in Canada. The response ‘start a big one and wait’.

On this edition of Just One More Book, Mark speaks with Rick Wilks about the thirty-two year evolution of his independent children’s book publishing company, Annick Press, from two books per year by kids for kids to thirty amazing titles each year.

I really like this interview and the whole concept of your series. I’ve met Rick Wilks and interviewed him myself and his passion is palpable. There’s a two-minute video clip of Rick on our site.

I’ve interviewed several Annick Press authors and other children’s books authors but, unlike you, I don’t have the luxury to get in-depth with them. Thanks for going deep!
