All the Books and All the Fun at London Book Fair 2022

52

by Soulla Christodoulou

Welcome and hello!
It’s been a busy week with London Book Fair 2022 and as usual there’s been a lot of networking, chatter about books and publishing and a whole lot of laughter.
 
One of the best things about mooching around @londonbookfair is the people you meet who are “it-feels-like-this-was-meant-to-be” kind of people; likeminded, warm, encouraging, smiley, positive, engaging and… who agree to group photos! *of course, right?*
Meeting Constantia Soteriou, Lina Protopapa, Christiana Christou and Sofia Christou with my wonderful translator Maria Christodoulou was one of the highlights of the book fair for me.
 
Grateful to everyone who took the time to talk to me about books, publishing, film rights and what next… exciting times, great conversations and the best book talk ever.
