The Bookseller’s showcase conference – FutureBook 2017 – was held in London, England, today. According to the trade journal of record, ‘FutureBook brings together leading thinkers in publishing, retail, editorial, writing, marketing and tech, along with speakers from other industries.’
What better occasion is there, on this first day of the Advent calendar, to open a window on the Jolabokaflod Book Campaign for 2017?
The Book Bulletin will evolve between today and International Book Giving Day (14 February 2018) into a rich collection of your recommendations and favourite books. Get involved by reading our advice for the book trade and by contributing to our Book Bulletin: Winter 2017 crowdfunding campaign.
To mark FutureBook 2017 today, the 1 December ‘Book of the Day’ recommendation is provided by J K Rowling, one of the best-known writers in the world, who is famous around the world for her novels, films, stage plays and philanthropy.
