Join Publishers Weekly senior news editor Calvin Reid for a lively webcast
about how manga has rebounded in recent years, with graphic novels for
kids having grown into one of the most exciting categories in book publishing.
With manga sales up and the category moving in the right direction for several
years, today’s publishers are releasing more and more manga hits as well as
a few nonmanga hits.
Join panelists Kurt Hassler of Yen Press and Ashlee Vaughn of VIZ Media,
who represent two of the most important publishers in manga, to discuss the
growing popularity of light novels, prose works based on manga and anime
properties. They will also provide a sneak peek into some of their exciting
new forthcoming titles that are sure to resonate with readers of all ages.
