#LBF18 Day Two – The best bits!

Day two of #LBF18 was once again a hive of activity. As industry professionals filled the halls of this global marketplace for rights negotiation and the sale and distribution of content across print, audio, TV, film and digital channels.

Here is a look at just some of the action from day two:

Authors of the Day…
First up in the #LBFlive studio today was Baltics Author of the Day for Latvia, Nora Ikstena. Nora told us what she thought of #LBF18 and took on our 4 questions in 20 seconds, here is what she had to say:

Sinking Europe…
Later we chatted to Mihkel Mutt, Author of the Day for Estonia. Mihkel was here for a session on ‘Sinking Europe? European Narratives in Times of Change’, following the session he gave us his thoughts on this hot topic:

LBF International Excellence Awards…
Last night saw a grand celebration of publishing and related activities outside the UK when the The International Excellence Awards, held in partnership with The Publishers Association, took place. Here is a look at the highlights:

Poetry at LBF…
As rising sales across the globe have proven, poetry is currently one of the most dynamic areas of publishing and a big part of #LBF18.

We have the Poets’ Corner, the Poetry Collective and of course our Poet of the Fair, Imtiaz Dharker who popped into the #LBFLive studio earlier today.

Waterstones Children’s Laureate and Inaugural Illustrator of the Fair…
Later in the day Lauren Child, multi-award-winning, bestselling writer and creator of many much-loved characters, including Clarice Bean, Ruby Redfort and Charlie and Lola, joined us in the studio to tell us a little more about why she was here.
