Jean Feiwel, our lovely boss, was a guest on "The Leonard Lopate Show" March 3. She has become somewhat of a legend in the children's book industry, and is the brains behind such series as The Baby-Sitters' Club, Goosebumps, Dear America, and Magic School Bus. She also published, dare we say it, Harry Potter. It's no surprise to us that someone else wanted to talk to her about what she does best!
Jean Feiwel, Senior Vice President and Publisher of Feiwel and Friends and Square Fish, was a guest on the March 3rd, 2008 1:30pm to 2:00pm segment discussing “What Makes a Best-selling Children’s Book?”
Jean appeared along with Diane Roback, Senior Children’s Editor at Publishers Weekly, and Micha Hershman, a manager of Borders Group's children's department.
