After the pandemic and subsequent confinements , the London Book Fair was back in full swing this Spring from 18 to 20 April 2023. I visited the Fair as Author, having published my illustrated children’s book’ The Princess and the Crow’ in 2019 with Austin Macauley Publishers Ltd. I felt on top of the world among the wonderful writers, publishers, illustrators and more, networking and exchanging ideas about the future of books. In conversation with the Publishers Association, Mayor of London #SadiqKhan said – culture is in the DNA of London. It’s the glue that binds our city together. Sharing a few photos with you and wishing to be here with you in March 2024.
Greetings from London and thank you for your visit.
Going down High Street,Olympia, My heart overflows with nostalgia; On tree tops, I behold, Blossoms of green and gold; At the London Book Fair, Writers and poets fare; In the pages of each book, I delve and I look, Your name is engraved, By the invisible hand of God.
Sad to learn that the world greatest book event, the London Book Fair 2020 is cancelled. I have been visiting the fair stoically for the last five years to exhibit my poetry book and this is where I met the publisher of my debut children’s book The Princess and the Crow in 2016. I was craving to see my book on the shelves of Austin Macauley London. As we say in French ‘l’homme propose, Dieu dispose!’ I, however, salute the decision of the Reeds Exhibition to cancel the event.Better safe than sorry. I look forward to the London Book Fair 2021 with added zeal and ‘ si Dieu le veut’ with a brand new book.
