Word got around Twitter pretty fast about about an exciting event at London Book Fair (#LBF09) run by the Society of Young Publishers: Canon Tales. See an excellent video on it here. We were impressed with the event’s positive vibe in the middle of what can feel like a never-ending avalanche of bad news. Our own @dberthiaume thought we in the U.S. could do with a similar event at BEA: turning up the volume on what excites the most forward-thinking people in the industry. She brought up the idea with two rising stars, Ryan Chapman and Ami Greko, and they ran with it. They made the calls. We turned on the cameras. And the result left us all feeling like books have a bright future indeed.
