Book Fair

Photos from Bologna

Last week I was in Italy for the Bologna Children’s Book Fair. Here are a few photos:

There’s a used book tent in town (no relation to the Fair I don’t think). Not pictured: X-Men comic books in Italian.

First night in Bologna Greenhouse has a family dinner with our sister company Rights People and Working Partners. It ends, inevitably, with limoncello.

Covered sidewalks at night. So pretty!

The decidedly less-pretty back alleys of the actual fair grounds. Occasionally you spot a celebrity or two.

2am, the street outside our perfect little hotel.

The weather was *beautiful* this year.

With Greenhouse’s brilliant U.K. agent Polly Nolan. This is Tuesday afternoon I believe and we’re pretty fatigued after two straight days of meetings. But spirits are high!

Last but not least, De Cesari, where I had dinner my last night in town. Some of the best food (and service) I’ve ever experienced in Bologna, which is a pretty high standard. All of it totally worth the crippling jet lag.
