Publishing Jewish Children's Books
A Chat with Joni Sussman
New Books Network 2023
Joni Sussman talks about her love for children's books and for everything Jewish and how she found her life's mission combining these passions as publisher of Kar-Ben, (part of Lerner Publishing Group), which is dedicated to creating great children's books related to Judaism for Jewish and non-Jewish children in North America and beyond. Now publishing over 20 titles a year, Joni shows us several of her upcoming books and gives excellent tips for writers who wish to submit picture book manuscripts. There is also a bonus for authors who want to submit manuscripts for publication to Kar-Ben, after listening to our interview!
