From the release:
This year’s conference will start with an overview of the children’s book world in 2010; what sold, what didn’t, and what’s still to come. We’ll go on to discuss the impact of emerging technologies on the industry and where children’s books fit into the digital landscape. Find out from experts in the fields of broadcast, social networking, education and research about how children are engaging with new digital landscapes and learn how publishers can approach the digital environment and meet audiences’ expectations from a position of strength.
