Publishers are often referred to as the “gatekeepers” of the book industry. But what goes on behind the scenes at a publishing house: How are the decisions made to publish, edit, design, market, and sell a graphic novel? What drives different publishers to produce the unique kind of work they do? This panel explores these questions with the CBC Graphic Novel Committee member publishers. Panelists include Tracy Hurren (Drawn & Quarterly), Mark Siegel (First Second), Maya Bradford (Abrams ComicArts), Andrew Arnold (HarperCollins). Moderated by Carla Riemer (librarian, Claremont Middle School).
