No surprise, here’s the line I liked best from Wednesday’s Twitter party: “Not so fast on the demise of the print book (says the tech editor, no less).” –tweeted by SLJ’s technology editor, Kathy Ishizuka
I immediately thought of Mo Willems’s 2011 Zena Sutherland Lecture, “Why Books?” which will appear (in print!) in the November/December 2011 issue of the Horn Book Magazine and which you can read (online!) right now.
And a heads up: the Magazine’s March/April 2012 special issue will be devoted to adapting books into other media, including movies, apps, theater, and e-books.
