In less than two weeks I will be traveling to Italy to go to the ‘big show’. Yep, it’s that time of the year folks, when thousands of publishers, agents, authors, illustrators and other industry types head to the Bologna Children’s Book Fair. Often considered the biggest annual event for children’s books, this is the place to be for buying and selling publishing rights for books. I will be flying there with an international squadron of elite paper engineers to see what new trends are surfacing and show off some of the goodies I have been creating the past few months. I am very excited to reconnect with some folks and looking forward to meeting some fresh faces during the endless succession of 5-minute meetings. So if you are in Bologna on March 19-22 and find yourself weary after strolling the aisles gawking at some of the 1200 exhibitors, drop me a message and I’ll meet you at the gelato line (behind 4000 other guests). Viva Bologna!
