About the presentation...

“State of the Children’s Publishing Market”

With a rich understanding of our unique corner of publishing, children's book creators can strongly position the projects they're working on—the ones that reflect them as individual storytellers. In this state-of-the-market and acquisition trends presentation, hear what’s selling and what’s being acquired, what’s being wished for and what’s showing signs of potential upswing. Understand the factors influencing our industry’s health and sales, including AI, book banning, social media and book discovery, diversity efforts, the sale of Simon & Schuster, imprint launches and closures, and more. Veteran editor and author Deborah Halverson combines deep market research and exclusive interviews with many industry insiders to provide an experts’ sense of the overall state of the children’s book market.
