Having a children’s book published in today’s tough market can seem like an impossible dream. But in reality, getting your book idea into shape and into print can hinge on just the right advice from a pro. Do you need an agent? Should you connect with an artist? What about self publishing? In a two-session seminar, nationally-known author, Peter Mandel, will pass on the insider’s tips you need to know in order to create a marketable first book and get it into the hands of exactly the right gatekeepers in the publishing world. A regular contributor to The Boston Globe and The Washington Post, Mandel is the author of eleven books for kids including Bun, Onion, Burger (Simon & Schuster), Jackhammer Sam (Macmillan) and Zoo Ah-Choooo (Holiday House).
