The London Book Fair and MIP Junior forge closer connections between publishing and TV

Later this week The London Book Fair (LBF) team will be attending MIPJunior, “the world’s showcase for kids programming.” LBF has coordinated an event in partnership with MIPJunior, “What Publishers Want To See From Producers”, that will be chaired by The London Book Fair Director, Jacks Thomas.

Participating panellists are:

  • Stephanie Gauld, Digital Publisher, Egmont UK
  • Fiona Macmillan, Publisher, Children’s Colour and Licensing Random House Children’s Publishers
  • Karen Lawler, Executive Manager of Licensing Hachette Children’s Books
  • Sharna Jackson, Editor, Tate Kids

Jacks Thomas, Director, The London Book Fair, said“The gaps between creative worlds are closing more and more each year. It is exciting to be able to work across the disciplines within the creative industries; hosting some of the best children’s publishers in Britain at one of our sister events, MIPJunior in Cannes, is a great example of this. TV producers will get the chance to hear just how best to position themselves to close successful deals to showcase their TV creations through complementary books.”
