Covering everything from board book trends to the pricing limitations of the materials, this talk will prepare you to tackle your own novelty board book project.


About the Editor

I’m an Associate Editor in Children's at Chronicle Books in San Francisco. I primarily edit board books, picture books, and formats / novelty, working on titles like Bunny Slopes, This Is How We Do It, and Masha and Her Sisters. I love books with a diverse or global perspective, books that celebrate the power of the imagination, and books that push the boundaries of traditional bookmaking. I’ve been a children’s bookseller for about ten years, at three different independent book stores on two coasts. I also have a master’s degree in Children’s Literature from Simmons College in Boston, where I took courses on all genres of children’s literature.
