This 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.
It’s easy to forget that the amazing books we read are the products of publishing companies that exist within what some call a flawed economic model.
On this edition of Just One More Book, Mark speaks with Nancy Traversy, co-founder of Barefoot Books — a company the publishes books to inspire and educate our children as the caretakers of tomorrow — about her decision to pull their catalog from big box bookstores such as Borders and Chapters, and turning Barefoot Books green.
