Publishers’ Day was a very happy occasion. It was held at SASNEV and once again the staff pulled out all the stops to make sure that everyone felt welcome, the venue was ready and that we all had topless cups of tea and coffee.
There were 22 illustrators and writers (one of whom had come all the way from Durban), three representatives from Oxford, Carol Broomhall from Jacana, Micelle Cooper from Tafelberg, Simone Hough from Human&Rousseau, Thea Korff from Best Books , Dusanka Stojavica from New Africa, and Danél Hanekom and Shané Kleyn from Proteaboekhuis. All of the publishers’ representatives were very constructive and even the most nervous of the participant illustrators and writers were soon at their ease. A very good experience all round.
