Hey there !
Those last days were crazy, so I take this time for giving you some news. I don’t know necessarily where to start, so let’s make a list:
- Editorial blog : It turned out my blog became more and more involved in some specific topics, and sometimes I am wondering if there is still a place here for my personnal daily posts. It gets more professional but I still feel this blog will remain mine if I am able to keep this kind of post available. However, I see my blog more as an editorial project than ever ! There is now an e-mail adress if you want to contact me, and I updated the “About” page, so check this out 😉
National Bookfair of Paris: every year, I dream to go to the National Bookfair of Paris, THE place to be for those who want to meet their favorite authors, publishers, assisting to conference, getting autographs, discovering new books etc. I already went to the Bookfair of Brive, but this year will continue as good as it started : I will be at the National Bookfair of Paris with the greatest bookshop’s team of France and the publisher of Toni Morrison’s books in french, Editions 10-18. It’s so crazy, and I just can’t wait to be there.
All started with Twitter, and now I will have my pass as an intern at this great event. One day, I will probably write an article about tips I find out, by and by. But let’s see how it goes first. I am superstitious, you know that.
- Roots&Inspiration, new category ! I planned it for a long, long, long time. I came up with a new bilingual project , “Roots&Inspiration” which will point out artistic and inspirational project of ethnic communities (so, not only afro, of course!) : through portraits of interesting and inspirationnal profiles, I hope to underline the diversity of creation and its several origins. Art, entrepreneurship, music, website…everything !So if you want to let me know your project, send me a mail to mrsroots.blog[at]gmail.com. If you feel that ethnic culture, origins and creation are part of your work, or if you have questions about it, ask me ! 🙂
- Google’s innovation : I couldn’t end this post without talking about this new innovation. Google is seriously freaking me out: it literally realized an e-book, as a substitute to paper book, taking into consideration the important of the use (manner to hold a book, sliding pages).
Innovation is in this way to insert in people’s habits: like Facebook which became a part of our lifestyle, our habits concerning books are corresponding to a way of use. In France, and mainly in Europe, resistance to reader and tablet were sometimes justified by that, so Google’s e-book gets closer to our habits. Very interesting.
