Michael Norris, author of Simba Information’s Trade E-Book Publishing 2012 and Children’s Publishing Market Forecast 2012, opens both reports to show just how much the relationship between consumers and children’s books is changing in unexpected ways. With signature proprietary data and a historical perspective, this presentation will cover several vital aspects of the U.S. children’s and young adult book market: how are e-books being adopted by the younger generation? How has the book and e-book landscape changed in the wake of Borders’ liquidation? And finally, what can be done to not just sell books, but sell the activity of reading to children? Join Michael for an honest, hype-free discussion of this complicated market.

How are e-books really being adopted by the younger generation? How has the print and e-book landscape changed in the wake of Borders’ liquidation and bookstore closures? And finally, what can be done to not just sell books, but sell the activity of reading to children? These are just some of the questions American publishing expert and Simba Information senior analyst Michael Norris is posing as he shares proprietary data on e-books, the U.S. children’s publishing market, and the unexpected challenges of both.
