How Does an Idea Become a Book?

How do you make the cover? How did you get the pictures? How many revisions did you have to do? Young readers always have so many questions about the book publishing process. I'll give a quick overview with lots of time for participants to ask their own questions.

This program is designed to answer participants' questions about how stories go from ideas to drafts to finished books. Most readers are astounded to learn how long it takes to publish a book and how many people are involved in its creation. I'll demystify that process and leave plenty of time for participants to ask questions.
