The Frankfurt Book Fair Demystified

New Zealand is gearing up to be guest of honour at the Frankfurt Book Fair - the biggest book fair in the world. But what does it mean for each of us - and exactly how is it all working?

Come along and find out from Sarah Ropata, Manager Books and Literature Programme NZ @ Frankfurt 2012.

Sarah will talk to us in the cosy, informal, environment of Meow Cafe in central Wellington, and will be happy to answer your questions. We are thrilled to have her along to kick off the first of the WCBA's winter club nights.

With an opportunity to break for supper, this promises to be a very informative and enjoyable evening.
