Greetings from the London Book Fair!

Hello from London! I arrived yesterday in the city along with my colleague, press director Doug Armato. Once we have a cuppa and a bacon butty, we’ll be ready to represent the University of Minnesota Press at this year’s London Book Fair.

We have a long-standing and active international rights and translations program, with press titles routinely translated and published by diverse publishers from around the world. But this is actually the first time the University of Minnesota Press has attended the London Book Fair. This year, we are showcasing a diverse list to international publishers (mainly from Europe) that includes our cutting edge scholarly and theory titles alongside our curated lists of commercial fiction, children’s and young adult fiction, and cookbooks.

I would like to draw your attention to a handful of titles, included below, that we feel will receive significant attention in London:
