We will be re-launching the London Professional Series as INDUSTRY INSIDERS at our first ever KIDS BOOK QUIZ!

We guarantee a great time getting to know some of the friendliest faces in publishing – both those who work in the industry and fellow writers, illustrators and book enthusiasts.

Ten team captains from ‘inside’ children’s publishing, including Fiz Osborne, Picture book Editor at Bloomsbury, Liz Bankes, Commissioning Editor at Catnip Books, Robin Stevens, Assistant Editor at Egmont, Rachel Petty, Commissioning Editor at Pan Macmillan, Ben Horslen, Editorial Director at Puffin and agents Gemma Cooper from the Bent Agency, Hannah  Sheppard at DHH Literary Agency and Louise Lamont at LBA, plus more to come!

Everyone will be there on the night mingling beforehand and during the break, as well as vying for victory in the quiz. Other publishers and agents tbc!

The teams: Teams will consist of an ‘Insider’ captain (an editor, agent or designer) and up to four team members. You can either sign up as a team of four, or sign up as an individual participant and we’ll allocate you to a team on the night… it’s up to you!

The cost of your ticket includes a drink* from the bar, but the pub also serves delicious (and shareable) food and of course, you’re free to buy more drinks as the night progresses!

Where? The Square Pig, 30-32 Procter Street, London WC1V 6NX (closest tube Holborn)

When? 6-9 pm. We’ll be there, with our guest captains from 6pm, ready to start the quiz at 7pm – we expect the quiz to go on no later than 9pm (including breaks!)

Book now – places are limited – see you there!

*limited to a small glass of house wine, a pint of draft beer or a soft drink
