Today's Your Call: Who controls the future of the book?

On the next Your Call, we’ll talk about how e-books are changing the economy of publishing and creating an uncertain future for writers, readers, libraries, and booksellers.   Apple and some major publishers are the target of an antitrust suit that could ironically boost Amazon’s already dominant position.  Meanwhile, librarians struggle to provide access to e-books and independent bookstores are scrambling to get into the e-book business themselves.  What’s next, and what’s best for book-lovers?  It’s Your Call, with Matt Martin, and you.

Today on Your Call: What makes a great children’s book?

On the next Your Call, we’ll mark the 75th anniversary of Dr. Seuss’s first children’s book by talking about classic kids books, and the remarkable children’s literature being written right now.  Why are the bonds we make with those special children’s books so powerful?  And when stories like The Lorax head to the big screen – or the iPad -- how does the magic of a grown-up reading to a kid change? 

Guests:

Carla Kozak, children’s librarian at San Francisco Public Library.
