Shakespeare: Still Relevant?
To start our commemoration of the 400th Anniversary of Shakespeare's death, Cedric Watts considers ...
As Samuel Johnson nearly said: When a man is tired of the London Book Fair, he is tired of life.
Tired at the London Book Fair, now that's a different matter. And totally acceptable. It is, after all, a bit of a marathon, taking place over three days from next Tuesday at London's Olympia exhibition hall, welcoming over 25,000 visitors and featuring over 1,000 exhibitors. Including us!
We're at stand number 6C109, and if you are coming along, we'd be delighted if you popped by to say hello, chat to us about our range, our latest releases, and maybe how we can help you make the most of it all. Drop us a line at Derek@wordsworth-editions.com to book an actual slot if you like.
Communication is almost constant these days. Through things like this newsletter, our website, our social media etc, we can talk to our retailers, readers and other partners more often than at any time in history.
But it's also almost entirely digital. The chances to talk face-to-face are still pretty rare. And there's plenty to talk about!
The Fair takes place just ahead of the 400th anniversary of Shakespeare's death (on April 23rd) and the start of the five-year Brontë 200 celebrations, and we're as keen as you, I'm sure, to make the most of both landmarks.
Meanwhile, away from the printed page, the debates about school and library funding have been ratcheted up a few notches and affect us all. We'd love to hear your views.
And if you're travelling in from overseas specifically to attend the Fair, then definitely pop by. It would be madness to come all this way and not explore how we could work together.
Wherever you're coming from and whatever you want to discuss, or even just ask for recommendations on where to have lunch, you're all assured of a very warm Wordsworth welcome on stand 6C109.
Hopefully see you soon!
