Many exciting Beatnik travels are taking place! Beatnik Director Sally just got back from the massively cool and massively massive Frankfurt book fair, where she, once again, mingled among hundreds of international publishers and spread the Beatnik way of books far and wide. Although the jet lag hit hard, it sounded like a super fun (and profitable) experience!
In further exciting Beatnik travel news, Heather McAllister, author of Who You Are Is What You Do, is going to be attending the 2015 Taipei International Book Exhibition, where New Zealand will be the guest of honour. She'll be travelling to Taipei as part of the Book Exhibition's Visiting Author Programme, and will be joining authors such as Booker Prize winner Eleanor Catton and Dame Joy Cowley — woo! Who You Are is one of our most successful international titles, published in Australia and the USA, and translated into Croatian and Traditional Chinese.
