I had the honor of being one of the speakers at the 2016 iBooks Author Conference, an event that raised the level of dialogue and instruction regarding Apple’s multi-touch publishing software iBooks Author. The gathering of experts, educators, authors, programmers, designers, and more assembled in Nashville, Tenn., for a long weekend that also included the iBooks Author Conference Awards, The Hype Conference, and the Book Creator Conference.

Most of the sessions revolved around the media-rich opportunities available with iBooks Author, including the ability to embed animation, video, and audio content directly into the digital book.
