Evaluating Youth Lit — What Makes a Good Book Good?

Thursday, June 9, 2016 - 4:00am

 

Writing or illustrating a book for kids is easy, right? Those of us who work with children’s books for a living can say emphatically that “no, it isn’t!”

Sure, most people can read a book and tell right away whether it’s great or not-so-great. But what is it, exactly, that makes the difference?

Join us on June 9th as we cover the various elements that come together to create a book that kids will love, whether it’s the writing, the illustrations, or another bit of magic. Our panelists will bring different perspectives from the worlds of publishing and libraries for a discussion that will offer a great deal of combined experience in evaluating children’s books and will help you increase your skills and confidence in choosing the best youth titles for your library.

We hope you’ll tune in for this fun and informative webcast!
