London Book Fair 2013
Students and staff from the Centre (OICPS) were busy throughout the London Book Fair, held at Earls Court from the 15th to 17th April 2013. We had our own stand from which we marketed our degree programmes, staff publications, research and consultancy, and our July summer school. Over 40 students helped out with the running of the Fair, including manning the seminar rooms, the literary café, and the translation centre; and two students helped on the Frankfurt Book Fair stand.
We ran four well-attended seminars on film adaptation, children’s publishing, ebook typography and the gamification of books. You will be able to listen to our podcast of the latter event. At our stand reception on the Tuesday evening, attended by over 150 people, we met up with friends of the Centre and alumni working at the fair. Pictures of the OICPS cake, which had a design by Chris Jennings, were tweeted round the fair before it was divided up – the cake disappeared very quickly!
