This week at Brilliant Publications (16th June 2022)

It’s been an eventful and busy week.

Publishers Association reception at the House of Commons

On Monday I attended the Publishers Association’s summer reception at the House of Commons. Around 160 senior figures from the world of publishing as well as some politicians were there.

All the speakers were asked to name a book that had a strong influence on them. The books chosen varied from Winnie the Pooh to the Works of Samuel Johnson. It was fascinating to hear people’s reasons for choosing the book they did. The overall theme that came through again and again was that developing a love of reading in children is so important.

Article in the Bookseller

If that wasn’t enough excitement for one week, we also feature in the latest edition of the Bookseller (a trade magazine with a circulation of 30,000), as part of their Back to School Market Focus. As a small, independent publisher we were delighted to receive this recognition.
