London Book Fair, Earls Court, London

Wednesday 13 April 2011

14:30, Children's Theatre, Earls Court 1

Taking Place: London Book Fair

Once upon a time, children’s publishing was an ugly duckling. Now, with the sales of children’s bestsellers matching those of titles aimed at adults, and new technology inviting children to engage in different ways with stories, the duckling-become-swan holds its head high, and publishers are vying with each other to sign up and keep key authors.

Three speakers, representing different parts of the world and different roles within the exciting field of children’s publishing, will discuss what’s happening and what the future may hold. Let’s hope it’s not tears before bedtime!
