By September 24, 2008 No Comments

The Book Publishers Association of NZ (BPANZ) and the Australian Publishers Association (APA) have been invited by the Association for the Export of Canadian Books to participate in a half-day summit at the Frankfurt Book Fair.

The Canada-Australia-New Zealand summit aims for publishers from the three countries to share ideas and to identify opportunities to work together. Topics to be considered include territorial rights, distribution, the ‘success stories’ of Australian writers’ festivals, and the Canadian model for funding publishing.

The summit will be moderated by Rob Sanders of Canada’s Greystone Books and speakers and panellists will include Kevin Chapman and Teresa Garnett from NZ; Juliet Rogers, Jane Palfreyman and Erica Wagner from Australia;  and Craig Riggs, Margie Wolfe and Scott McIntyre from Canada.

The summit will be held from 8.30am-12.30pm on Tuesday 14 October in the Esprit Room, Hall 9, at the Frankfurt Book Fair.
