In this, the last of our series about the publishers who will be at this year’s FCBG annual conference, we are revealing the full list of exhibitors, plus a selection of additional highlights. With so many publishers under one roof, we highly recommend that local teachers, librarians and children’s book enthusiasts consider joining us for the day on Saturday 8th April. This will be a rare opportunity to update your knowledge of current publishing, talk to publishers about upcoming events and possible author visits, and also to pick up some freebies.
The exhibiting publishers will be:
Curious Fox (with debut author Caighlan Smith on Saturday)
Hachette (with picture book authors Kes Gray and Rachel Bright on Saturday)
Macmillan (with Children’s Laureate Chris Riddell speaking at the Gala Dinner on Saturday)
Oxford University Press
Rock the Boat
Our programme also includes speakers representing or published by Barrington Stoke (Mairi Kidd and Emma Shoard), David Fickling ( Martin Brown and Jon Walter) and Piccadilly Press (Jo Cotterill). The conference book shop Tales on Moon Lane will be selling a wide range of titles from these and other publishers throughout the weekend. Each delegate will be given a beautiful Tales on Moon Lane canvas bag on arrival – ideal for collecting all those freebies from the publishers’ stands!
