The Bologna Children’s Book Fair, which takes place March 28-31, is the largest children’s book fair in the world. Rana DiOrio, chief executive pickle at Little Pickle Press, will be attending the fair as a participant, a doer, and to forge connections to take Little Pickle Press to the next level of growth and expansion. Here’s what she hopes to accomplish:
- Identify foreign rights partners for our titles.
- Identify titles published in other geographies and/or languages that we may wish to acquire foreign rights to publish in the United States or all English-speaking countries.
- Identify digital applications partners for our content.
- Identify and meet with potential content and distribution partners.
- Meet with potential strategic and financial investors.
- Get a sense of where the global industry is moving.
