We have been delighted to welcome many new children’s publishers to the IPG lately, and all members with interests in this sector are warmly invited to join us for a dinner organised by our Children’s Special Interest Group in September.
Our guests for the evening will be two experienced commentators on children’s books: Julia Eccleshare
, children’s books editor of the Guardian
and author or editor of many books; and Anna James
, a popular blogger
, media editor at the Bookseller and a former school librarian. Topics covered during the evening will include what it’s like to be a judge of a book prize, why prizes are important – and do they drive sales? We’ll also be looking at the coverage of children’s books in the press with a view of how to improve it. The dinner will be held in central London from 6pm on Thursday 10 September.
