The world's biggest book fair is in Frankfurt and Booktype has been invited to join the conversation around the future of books. We're on stage several times and our posse will be staffing our stand and getting out and about to meet publishers, editors and experts. We'd love to meet you; come past our stage at any time, or ping us on Twitter.
Tuesday, 9th October, you can catch Adam Hyde and myself presenting at the Tools of Change conference where we will be discussing Open Publishing with Joe Wikert, General Manager of O'Reilly at 14.10 CET.
On Friday 12th October at 13.00 CET on the Sparks Stage in Hall 8.0, Adam Hyde will discuss how Booktype has been used within education at our session, Reading, writing, revolution: the classroom publishers. Marita Fraser from University College London will launch "Framed Horizons: Student Writing on Nordic Cinema", a book produced by her students using Booktype. Using collaborative learning models alongside the software, they asked the question "What if the classroom itself was a publishing house?" UCL and Sourcefabric seek to change the way students work with books. Come see how we are doing this.
On Saturday, 13th October at 10.45 CET on the Sparks Stage in Hall 8.0, join us in a quick fire, 5-minute Ignite presentation entitled From Zero to Books in Minutes with Adam Thomas who will speak to Ed Novotka, editor in chief of Publishing Perspectives during a panel session as part of Publishing Perspective's hosted Self-Publishing session.
If you will be in Frankfurt from October 10-14, we would love to meet you. Come visit us at our stand at in Hall 8.0 (Innovation), L 973. We will have shiny new Booktype magazines with great stories featuring some of our collaborative partners from around the globe who are changing the landscape of publishing today. And we might have biscuits.
