We were two down last week as Caroline (Publicity & Marketing Manager) and Daniel Bolger (Managing Editor) were at the Frankfurt Book Fair! After weeks of prep, days of pulling together Fair packs, and of course some last minute panic on Tuesday evening, they headed off to Frankfurt last Wednesday morning. I was glad to finally see the back of them..I mean, I was glad to see them head off safely and well prepared.
They had a great Fair, with three days of meetings with agents, publishers, distributors and printers from all over the world. We want to give a huge thanks to both Culture Ireland for their support, and the Irish Literature Exchange for all their work on the Irish Stand and all their help, both during and in the lead up to the Fair.
This rights assistant is very grateful for all your help and advice throughout her first book fair with Liberties Press. After the handover meeting on Monday this week, I have a lot of follow-up to keep me busy now, and it won't be long until all the prep will start again for the London Book Fair in April!
Well done and a great big thank you to Caroline and Dan on a brilliant job at the Frankfurt Book Fair 2012!
