FROM PAGE TO SCREEN:
AN INSIDE LOOK AT CHILDREN’S BOOK ADAPTATIONS

Simmons College, The Paresky Conference Room
300 The Fenway, Boston MA
Monday, March 2, 5:30-7:00 pm

Ammi-Joan Paquette, Senior Agent with Erin Murphy Literary Agency

Moderator:
Deborah Kovacs, Senior Vice President, Walden Media and Publisher, Walden Pond Press

Moving a great story from one medium to another is both complex and delicate. What types of projects are best suited to this migration? How does the adapter know which elements of the story to highlight? What role, if any, does the author have in the process? What should fans of a book hope for and look for in an adaptation? Join this panel of experienced industry insiders to hear their insights and perspectives.

As always, we welcome anyone with an interest in children’s books—whether through publishing, writing, illustrating, teaching, librarianship, or book-selling. We hope you will join us!

Please RSVP here if you will be attending the panel at its rescheduled date on March 2.
