The London Book Fair this week was the perfect opportunity for Stationers from the publishing industry to get together and thanks to the generosity of Westchester Publishing Services we were able to meet at the Albion pub opposite the exhibition hall.
It was good to see Freemen Lorraine Shanley and Tyler Carey (from Westchester) both over from the US chatting with Past Master Helen Esmonde, Court Assistants Oliver Gadsby and Martin Woodhead. Liverymen Tej Sood, Jill Jones and Chris Jolly along with Deborah Rea from the Company’s office. We were also joined by Jeremy Brinton representing Corporate Member Publishers’ Licensing Services. After the drinks, a number of us attended the London Book Fair International Excellence Awards presented in partnership with the Publishers Association.
Liveryman Kevin Fitzgerald CMG presented an award; however we were there principally to support the London Book Fair Lifetime Achievement Award given to Sara Miller McCune the Founder and Chairman of Corporate Member Sage.

Finally, congratulations are due also to Freeman and Bursary Recipient Joshua Smith whose
dissertation was nominated in the Association for Publishing Education Publishing Dissertations and Project Awards which were also presented at the event.
