Kevin O’Connor

Director of Business Development/Content Acquisitions, NOOK Kids, Barnes & Noble

With almost twenty years of experience in kids’ media, Kevin O’Connor has worked virtually every aspect of the biz – research, TV production, toy development, licensing, touring, promotions, music and now eBooks.

Kevin joined Barnes & Noble  in 2010 to head of Content Acquisition and Publisher Relations for Kids’ eBooks. So he’s can finally discuss the finer points of Richard Scarry and Huckle the Cat vis a vis Anglo-American conceptions of village life with the average four-year-old. An alum of Sesame Workshop, Kevin has hilarious stories about the Muppets which can’t be told in mixed company. But he’ll hint at ‘em.

And although he’s earned 9 Gold records in his position in charge of business development at Kidz Bop… you don’t want to hear him sing. Seriously.
