The Addict


The Addict is an informal networking event for national and international publishers, agents and other book professionals, which takes place at the same time as Crossing Border. It began life organically eight years ago, when the many international guests from the publishing world sensed a great moment to get together in a relaxed atmosphere.

Each year, around 250+ professionals from more than 15 countries join us for The Addict, with word-of-mouth recommendations making it an essential date on the calendar of leading figures in the publishing industry.

“The Addict removes the formal elements of a conventional book fair and instead provides an immersive experience at the leading edge of literary and pop culture.”
– Lee Brackstone, Independent Publisher
