General Session: Blogs to Books

The conference will kick off by tackling the blog-to-book subject immediately and head on. What kind of blogs catch agent and publisher eyes? What makes a blog book-worthy? What kinds of material currently published in book form will stay online, in blogs or elsewhere?  Elisa Camahort Page moderates the conversation with Sterling Lord Literistic, Inc. agent Neeti Madan and Penguin editors Marian Lizzi, Patrick Mulligan, and Rebecca Hunt.  Between them they've brought books to market from the commercial to the cerebral, from reference to narrative nonfiction to humor to pop culture.
