At 3.30pm Vainola and Saar discuss the topic “What makes a book a good candidate for translation and what are the steps needed to launch it into the world?” together with Nicolette Jones (The Sunday Times), Adam Freudenheim (publisher of Pushkin Press), Jen Shenton (manager of Waterstones, Trafalgar Square), and Emma Langley (relationship Manager at Arts Council England).

On November 25th, Vainola and Saar will host a workshop in the Estonian School in London.

The Children’s Bookshow is an annual tour of children’s authors and illustrators from the UK and abroad. The aim is to delight and inspire children with great poems, beautiful illustrations and gripping storytelling, helping teachers provide their students with a rich and exciting experience of literature and create the readers and writers of tomorrow.
