London Book Fair Preview

Just like last year, GalleyCat will be all over the London Book Fair, even if neither Ron nor I will actually be able to attend in person (oh, to have larger budget purse-strings at our disposal…) But for those who are attending, we welcome and in fact implore you to send in your best news, views, gossip and especially pictures of the action at Earls’ Court from April 16 to 18.

The Independent previews some of the best offerings, including how the LBF is, for the first time, opening itself up to the public with two events featuring Tracy Chevalier, Margaret Atwood and Andrew O’Hagan. “The trade is at the heart of our fair, but we recognised that the public is interested in the book world. For the first time we have teamed up with the Southbank Centre,” said exhibition manager Emma House.
