I've recently returned from the Bologna Book Fair, where I was one of the speakers at the SCBWI Biennial Conference. This was scheduled a long time ago, and despite my change in circumstances I was loathe to cancel, as it gave me something solid to focus on during this period of adjustment. I also needed to seriously re-connect with publishing in the West!
I'll post a report if I'm able, but for snapshots of the proceedings go to the organizer Erzsi Deak's Facebook page.
In addition to the Conference this was the first year SCBWI had a stand at the Book Fair.
