Ljubljana Book Fair 2008
Claire Squires, Senior Lecturer in Publishing at the Oxford International Centre for Publishing Studies, recently visited the Ljubljana Book Fair in Slovenia.
She was invited to deliver a lecture entitled 'Stories of Success: Marketing British Fiction', based on her book Marketing Literature: The Making of Contemporary Writing in Britain at the Book Fair. Fellow speakers in the Fair's programme of talks included Jason Epstein, author of Book Business: Publishing Past Present and Future, and Michel Bruillon of the Pôle Métiers du Livre at the Université Paris X-Nanterre.
While in Slovenia, she also led two classes on the subject of literary prizes and book covers at the University of Ljubljana, which is a partner institution in the European Master in Publishing programme based at Oxford Brookes.
