At the Annual Summer Conference, Rubin will offer a Pro-Track session--DIGITAL DOINGS: WHAT PUBLISHERS ARE DOING TO PROMOTE CHILDREN'S BOOKS ONLINE; give a workshop--FROM PUBLISHER TO AGENT: OBSERVATIONS FROM A SEASONED PUBLISHER TURNED AGENT; and deliver a keynote speech--SCCC FORMERLY KNOWN AS SCBWI? ONCE SOCIETY OF CHILDREN'S BOOK WRITERS AND ILLUSTRATORS, NOW A SOCIETY OF CHILDREN'S CONTENT CREATORS?
Here's a bit from Martha's interview:
"Rubin Pfeffer, people. THE Rubin Pfeffer.
He's one of the keynote speakers at this summer's SCBWI conference in L.A., and given his incredible career in children's literature, he'll no doubt give a sensational talk.
Rubin started as a designer for Macmillan in 1974 and then spent 27 years at Harcourt, where he rose to become president of their trade book division over the era the company won Newbery, Caldecott, and National Book awards, as well as Nobel prizes for work on the adult side."
You can meet Rubin Pfeffer in person (along with a ton of other terrific presenters) at the Annual Summer Conference in Los Angeles.
