The Bookseller magazine’s annual conference this year is to feature a strand on children’s nonfiction – which is being organised by Nibweb members Lionel Bender and Jenny Vaughan. The aim is to raise the profile of nonfiction in all the many forms it can be found, or should be found or might be in future. The conference lasts a day and is to take place at County Hall, London. (That’s the old County Hall building, just south of Westminster Bridge.)
Lionel will be speaking on the experience of publishing nonfiction in the US, where it’s definitely part of the mainstream, and there will be speakers addressing issues such as what readers are looking for, the different forms that nonfiction can take and what the future might hold.
There’s a lot to think about: it’s time to bring nonfiction out of the shadows and think about just how exciting it can be!
