On 9/12/13, we met to discuss reader’s advisory during times of transition, especially during the super-busy back-to-school season.
It’s not even November yet, but I tell you what: this chat feels like it took place several years ago. This Fall has been crazy-busy!
I discovered a bunch of transcripts that I published on Storify but hadn’t yet managed to post here. Sorry about that, friends.
I’ll roll them out one by one for searching/finding ease.
First up, a Storify of our lively & informative chat with Lizzie Skurnick, author of Shelf Discovery and publisher of Lizzie Skurnick Books. Since Lizzie’s bread & butter is bringing lost classics of middle grade & YA back into print, we chose backlist as our topic of discussion, launching the immortal hashtag #babygotbacklist on an unsuspecting world.
