Each year, Australian publishers big and small travel to the Frankfurt Book Fair to meet face to face with their international counterparts. To find out which Australian publishers will be at FBF this year and where, look out for our annual Think Australian magazine, which will be emailed to Think Australian newsletter subscribers in the coming weeks and distributed in print at the fair. You can also meet Australian publishers (in party mode!) by attending the Australia stand party on Thursday 12 October at 5.30pm at Hall 6.2 A60.
One Australian title that is sure to get plenty of attention at the fair is Josephine Wilson’s novel Extinctions, which was recently announced as the winner of Australia’s most prestigious literary prize, the Miles Franklin Literary Award. According to the publisher, UWA Publishing, rights enquiries started arriving within hours of the announcement. Read all about the winning title here.
