Last weekend Auryn provided hands-on iPad based demos to enthusiastic attendees of the Society of Childrenâ€™s Book Writers and Illustrators 39th annual Summer Conference. Representatives from Auryn also provided consultations to conference participants about digital book opportunities.
Tulika Mehrotra, Aurynâ€™s Director of New Business Development, notes: â€œThe event was an exciting opportunity to show artists and illustrators that digital storybooks can add a dimension of interactivity and wonder while still remain true to the original aesthetic. The interactive element is engaging for both parent and child, and can heighten the narrative experience with a truly shared activity.â€?
