TDC Book Night! 2018
April 26 @ 6:00 pm - 8:30 pm
It’s time once again for TDC Book Night! Join us to meet three of the world’s best book cover designers and art directors who are coming to show us how it’s done.
Note: We’ve moved this to the Theater at MAD (Museum of Art and Design) at 2 Columbus Circle to accommodate a larger crowd! The time has also been updated: doors open at 6pm and the event starts at 6:30pm sharp.
After 16 years designing and art directing book covers, Lauren Panepinto has worked in every publishing genre and collaborated with every style of artist. As the Creative Director of the Orbit Books division of Hachette Books for the past ten years, she has been trying to merge the worlds of genre and commercial publishing and figure out what SciFi/Fantasy publishing looks like in the present world of mainstream “geek” media.
