Publishing Innovation Conference 2017: Decoding Diversity

What exactly does diversity mean in the publishing world? Is it solely about equality in gender or race? Can diversity just mean a difference in ideas rather than cultures? Are we any closer to being more representative of the different experiences readers have today than we were a decade ago?

The Publishing Innovation Conference is going to attempt to answer these questions! Organised by the current MA Publishing course at London College of Communication, this conference will encourage an engaging dialogue on the topic of diversity, ranging from issues of race, gender, class, disability and accessibility and how they are being addressed within the industry.

A great topic, and very timely.

Childrens Books

Our Favourite Children’s Books

This week is the Bologna Children’s Book Fair! We’re not attending this event (we’re still not over the London Book Fair) but we’re keeping up to date with all the exciting deals and news on the latest books.

In honour of the Bologna Book Fair, and it’s speciality towards children’s books, we thought we would share some of our teams favourite children’s books!

Lucy Slater, Recruitment Consultant:

Lucy’s favourite childhood books include a sweet story about family life, the tale of a cuddly bear and another book on an odorous witch with Goblins for next door neighbours.

Michael Lawlor, Temps Team Administrator:

Michael’s favourite childhood book is all about two amphibious friends who go on lots of adventures!

Ellie Pilcher, Administrator & Social Media Coordinator:

Ellie’s favourite stories are big childhood classics, about family, fantasy worlds and lots of magic!

Claire Louise Kemp, Senior Recruitment Consultant:

Claire Louise’s favourite childhood book is a story about a Guinea Pig, called Olga da Polga, and her animal friends.

Alison Redfearn, Recruitment Consultant:

Alison’s favourite books are classics about a friendly dog called Hairy, a Witch who really isn’t very good at magic and a little girl with special powers and  a love of reading.

Olivia Constantinides, Senior Recruitment Consultant

Olivia couldn’t get enough Jacqueline Wilson when she was younger, she thinks she must have read them all!

Helen Speedy, Associate Director

Helen’s favourite books include a story about a boy and his toy dog, a tale about a horrible, smelly couple who are tricked by monkeys, and a series of books about four best friends and a pair of travelling pants (jeans).

Karine Nicpon, Senior Recruitment Consultant:

Karine’s favourite books are a mix of French and English novels. A very funny picture book about a masked chick called Blaise, a series of books about five children solving mysteries, and a revised children’s version of an English classic (which she was later very pleased to find she could read for the first time all over again when she got the original copy!)

David Martin, Recruitment Consultant

David’s favourite books are both Roald Dahl classics! One’s about a group of evil witches who hate children, and the other’s about a young boy who gets his revenge on an evil landowner.
