On International Children's Book Day, author Lucine Kasbarian is
"In Conversation" with senior book review editor Wilda Williams of
Library Journal. Kasbarian and Williams will discuss the challenges and
benefits of producing material in this field, including insights from
their work inside publishing. They will talk about new directions
in today's book publishing area, diversity in children's books,
literacy issues, and Armenian-Americans publishing their own writings,
among other topics. The audience is encouraged to take part in the
conversation.

Kasbarian is author of "Armenia: A Rugged Land, an Enduring People"
and "The Greedy Sparrow" (Honor Book in the 2012 Storytelling World
Resources Awards). Kasbarian's website (http://www.lucinekasbarian.com)
demonstrates how one story can act as a resource to teach about
cultures on multiple levels, providing study guides, creative ideas
and activities. Wilda Williams has been an editor and reviewer of
many genres of books at Library Journal for nearly 25 years. She also
writes her own blog, WildaBookBeast (http://willywaldo.tumblr.com)

A light reception will follow the event.

Books by Kasbarian will be available for purchase and signing by
the author.
