Rock Stars of Reading part 13: Making Children’s Books Count

Monday, April 27, 2009.

Mark, Richard Michelson (on JOMB), Tony Diterlizzi and Scott Fisher spoke for three hours about almost everything related to children’s books and the publishing industry.  It was a very cerebral conversation, much of which revolved around print and digital books, the future of the industry and competing with technology for reader attention.  There were light moments, too, like when they did an analysis of Jon Scieszka‘s (on JOMB) reign as the first National Ambassador for Young People’s Literature.
