New Zealand delegation preparing for Taipei International Book Exhibition
Preparation for the Taipei International Book Exhibition (TIBE) is well underway with a strong New Zealand representation of seven publishers attending this year.
The publishers who are represented are Beyond Reality Media, Eunoia Publishing, Millwood Press, Oranui, Oratia Media, The Writing Bug and Upstart Press.
The book fair opens on Wednesday 8 February and there will be a reception on the New Zealand stand at 4.30pm ensuring our publishers have every opportunity to network and connect with potential international partners. The last day of the fair is Monday 13 February.
There are four TIBE first timers this year Beyond Reality Media, Eunoia Publishing, Millwood Press, and The Writing Bug. Two of them, Sharon Holt from The Writing Bug and Sophie Siers from Millwood Press, will be reading and singing in a public session at the fair on Saturday 11 February.
