Librarians honour publisher

27.09.10 - Caroline Horn - The Bookseller

Klaus Flugge, m.d. of Andersen Press, has become only the second publisher to be awarded an honorary membership of the Youth Libraries Group after the National Literacy Trust’s Liz Attenborough.

Flugge was recognised for his passion for picture books and his nurturing of talents including Tony Ross, Michael Foreman and David McKee, as well as his courage in publishing controversial novels such as Melvin Burgess’ Junk and Angry Arthur (Hiawyn Oram and Satoshi Kitamura).

Librarians also noted his warmth and generosity and called him a unique character.
