Лондонская книжная ярмарка узнала Россию ближе

По всеобщему признанию, форум в этом году был очень оживленным, однако об эффективности российского участия в нем судить пока рано.
Все участники из англоязычных стран, которых опросил британский отраслевой журнал The Bookseller, неизбежно вспоминали прошлогоднюю частично сорванную ярмарку и признавались в том, что в этом году LBF всецело оправдала ожидания и была оживленной как никогда. Благодаря общему позитивному настрою выросло число и встреч, и сделок, обширные списки которых ежедневно публиковали отраслевые издания.
