I'm just back from the Athens Children's Bookfair where I was a guest of the British Council, hosted a panel on the Impact of New Media on Teenage Reading, and a round table discussion with publishers, Ministry officials and copyright agencies on the future of the book. I also got to see the Parthenon and hang out with lovely people incuding authors Kevin Brooks and Keith Gray, Manga artist and star Sonia Leong and her award winning publisher Emma Hayley of Self Made Hero, performance poetry boyband/collective Aisle 16. Thanks to all at the British Council for making it all so enjoyable.
