Since we can’t travel to our usual conferences, to showcase all of our exciting new books and talented authors we decided to bring our preview to you—virtually!
We recently partnered with Booklist on a free webinar to highlight our new titles publishing this fall and winter, as well as offer a chance to hear directly from the authors about their books.
In this hour long webinar, we share the most anticipated upcoming titles across our imprints, from Disney Hyperion to Marvel Press to Lucasfilm Press. Included in the list are the latest books from Mo Willems, Eoin Colfer, Kwame Mbalia, and Alexandra Bracken, just to name a few of our amazing authors, as well as introductions to several brand new series we can’t wait for you to read.
To make things even more exciting, we asked a few of the authors to join in and share a little bit about what we can expect from their books. There are two panels during the webinar. The first panel features authors who are reimagining Disney stories in brand new ways. This panel is moderated by Julia Smith, Books for Youth senior editor at Booklist, and includes J.J. Gilbert, author of The Mouse Watch, Estelle Laure, author of City of Villains, Alyssa Moon, author of Delphine and the Silver Needle, and Emma Theriault, author of Rebel Rose. The second panel features authors from the Rick Riordan Presents imprint discussing their upcoming books. This panel is moderated by Stephanie Lurie, the editor of Rick Riordan Presents, and features J. C. Cervantes, author of The Shadow Crosser, Sarwat Chadda, author of City of the Plague God, and Kwame Mbalia, author of Tristan Strong Destroys the World.
