Webinar on Graphic Novels hosted by Baker & Taylor

Book wholesaler Baker & Taylor is hosting a Webinar next week for Librarians and book retailers (their target clients). It's Wednesday, 2pm EST, and to attend you need to sign up at their website. We're curious what they can say in 25 minutes, but I think it may be interesting. John Shebleski is on the panel. He's Sales Manager for Diamond Books, a good friend, is very knowledgeable about graphic novels. B&T is one of our biggest clients through Consortium Book Sales and Distribution, and they've sold lots of our first two graphic novels: Pitch Black: Don't Be Skerd by Youme Landowne and Anthony Horton, and Mr. Mendoza's Paintbrush with Christopher Cardinale illustrating the Luis Alberto Urrea story. Pitch Black was chosen for a Top Ten Great Graphic Novels for Teens by the American Library Association in 2009 and Mr. Mendoza's Paintbrush has already been chosen as one of the year's Top 10 Graphic Novels for 2010 by Kirkus Reviews and we hope it joins Pitch Black on the ALA list. We're crossing our fingers.
