Um dos maiores eventos para editoras, escritores e livreiros, a London Book Fair 2013 amplia a área e os eventos dedicados a leitura infanto-juvenil, com maior destaque para inovações digitais. É o reflexo da grande procura por palestras que falavam do tema na edição 2012 – lotação máxima em papos sobre escrevendo para a nova geração digital, autores nas redes sociais e leitura online. Saiba um pouco mais sobre a Feira do ano passado aqui.
We are delighted to announce the re-launch of the Children’s Innovation Theatre, in association with Once Upon a Bookcase. Situated in the heart of the Children’s Zone, the events in the theatre will explore the most innovative and impressive developments that have helped the sector to flourish.
The Children’s Innovation Theatre will showcase new media and online community projects, publishers reinventing traditional tools to engage a new generation of readers, and those finding new ways of promoting literacy.

Session highlights include:
– CARDOOO: Expanding the Scope of Books and Reading
