Children's publishing goes digital
Just last week Amazon increased the publishing world's attention to digital children's books with their agreement to acquire Marshall Cavendish's trade children's list, as color reading tablets from Amazon, Barnes & Noble and Kobo are exponentially expanding the audience for children's ebooks.
With amazing speed Publishers Lunch responded to this new challenge to publishers. The next Publishers Launch Conference is a full-day show, Children's Publishing Goes Digital, that kicks off Digital Book World week in January.
The event runs Monday, January 23, when those attending can check out the dozens of companies in the DBW exhibit hall and stick around for the Publishing Innovation Awards and DBW opening ceremonies reception. There is a packed schedule of nine different sessions.
