In the annual PW Star Watch program, emerging talents in the North American publishing markets are honored. A ‘Superstar’ goes to Frankfurter Buchmesse.
The duo behind Good Night Stories for Rebel Girls, Francesca Cavallo and Elena Favilli, share this year’s highest PW Star Watch honor and win a trip to the Frankfurter Buchmesse.
This year, Frankfurter Buchmesse offers a Wild Card free stand to both a German and an international exhibitor. And the PW Star Watch program opens to young talent in publishing in Canada, as well as in the United States.
The editorial lead of the translation powerhouse says AmazonCrossing’s mission is ‘stories that make people feel more similar than different.’
From 45 honorees, five shortlisted contenders will be revealed on September 4, a PW Star Watch ‘Superstar’ to be named on September 6 in New York City.
The PW Star Watch program provides its annual Superstar with a trip to Frankfurt Book Fair and a network of contacts in the world publishing industry.
‘We just have to do better at acquiring, marketing, and selling books by marginalized authors,’ says HarperCollins’ Andrew Harwell, this year’s Frankfurt Book Fair-bound PW Star Watch Superstar.
