“International Children´s Book Publishing: A Small Press Perspective”

This session will feature a panel discussion of representatives from small, independent publishers speaking on issues relating to international children’s books: Patsy Aldana, publisher of Groundwood Books, Kira Lynn from Kane Miller Books, Ellen Myrick, marketing representative for Lemniscaat and North-South Books, and Victoria Rock, editor with Chronicle Books. There will also be displays of recent publications and marketing materials from other independent publishers of international children´s books.

Diane’s note: I’m excited about this because Kane Miller Books have had several distinguished picture books this past year. I’ve seen good things from Chronicle and Groundwood Books. Of course I know about North-South Books, but I’ve never heard of Lemniscaat so this is an opportunity to grow and learn something new.
