What Do The Authors Have To Say?
Taylor Jenkins Reid said: ‘I am honored to be the International Author of the Day at The London Book Fair 2024. I am really excited to take part in one of the biggest events in the book industry, and to return to London, one of my favourite cities in the world. I can’t wait to connect and reconnect with authors, readers and publishers.’
Joseph Coelho said: ‘In my busy role as the current Waterstones Children’s Laureate I’ve travelled the length and breadth of the UK championing the vital role of public libraries, celebrating the power of poetry and showcasing new talent to diversify bookshelves and inspire bookmakers of the future.’
Flavia Z Drago said: ‘I was born in Mexico. When I was little I was lucky enough to live in a house full of books, and usually, the ones with beautiful or intriguing illustrations got my interest first. Pictures opened the doors of curiosity; they made me want to know more about the world where I lived, and the body in which I moved.’
