The halls were buzzing on day two at The London Book Fair. Visitors and exhibitors turned out in force to meet at the global marketplace for rights negotiation and the sale and distribution of content across print, audio, TV, film and digital channels.
Here is a look at some of the best bits from day 2 at #LBF19:
First up this morning we were joined in Poets Corner by Raymond Antrobus, our Poet of the Fair.
Raymond was in conversation with Isobel Colchester of Poet in the City, exploring some of the themes from his critically acclaimed collection The Perseverance, including a look at deafness, race, masculinity and more.
