- Laureate to address ceremony at 33rd International Publishers Congress in Jakarta on 11 November.
IPA is very concerned about the degradation of the freedom to publish situation in Hong Kong after five speech therapists, turned authors and publishers, were sentenced to 19 months in prison. The five, which published a series of children’s picture books, were found guilty of ‘conspiracy to print, publish, distribute, display and/or reproduce seditious publications’ by a Hong Kong District Court according to reports in the Guardian, New York Times and CNN.
IPA will have a full programme of open and invite-only meetings as well as a dedicated Africa Publishing Innovation Fund seminar at Frankfurt Book Fair this year. We are also delighted to see the Frankfurt Book Fair rights platform highlight SDG Publishers Compact signatories.
