The 7th Shanghai International Children's Book Fair
is on this weekend, with more than 60,000 new books, including 20,000 books not in Chinese, presented at the fair. As ever, it’s both a meeting and deal-making place for authors, illustrators and book companies, as well as a big marketplace for books for kids up to 16 years old. Last year drew more than 10,000 people per day.
One of the highlights is the Golden Pinwheel Illustration Exhibition. Among the attendees are 100+ children’s authors and illustrators. Pop by and you might bump into the Austrian artist Lizbeth Zwerger, one of the finest contemporary illustrators of children’s literature. Click here
