The morning sessions feature technology analyst James McQuivey on “Digital Disruption” in publishing and literary agent Rubin Pfeffer on “Books and Beyond.”
After lunch comes a panel that I’ll moderate, titled “OP to E: Bringing Books Back to Life.” The panelists are three SCBWI members who converted their out-of-print titles into digital books:
- Mary Jane Begin, author-illustrator of The Sorcerer’s Apprentice, now available through iTunes.
- Gail Gauthier, author of the middle-grade novel Saving the Planet & Stuff, now available for Nook and other readers.
- Emilie Boon, author-illustrator of Peterkin Meets a Star, also available through iTunes.
The registration date for this event has passed, but I hope to come home with some keen insights into the new world of publishing.
