London Book Fair 2017: For Publishers, Business Is Booming, But Brexit Means Uncertainty - Publishers' Weekly

Today Panzer was tootling around in the Panzermobile when he heard grumbling and questioning noises coming from the Catosphere ahead of him. It only took our traveling kitty a short time to find the hubbub was coming from the Publishers' Weekly (PW) site. With a little digging he found a post about the London Book Fair (LBF) that was raising all the questions.

According to the post at the Publishers' Weekly site, the London Book Fair opened with discussions about the questions of how Brexit will effect publishing in the UK. UK Publishers Association chief executive Stephen Lotinga, DK Publishing CEO Ian Hudson, and HarperCollins CEO Charlie Redmayne discussed the uncertainties of issues of free trade, currency, and copyright among others.

Panzer says, "Brexit is turning out not to be simple for the publishing industry."

Note: This is a long post. Bring a cup of cocoa and two chocolate cookies (biscuits) for today's reading selection.
