Alert! Arthur Attwell, founder and Managing Director of the publishing house known for being on the technical cutting-edge, Electric Book Works, has been selected by the British Council as South Africa’s 2009 Young Publishing Entrepreneur of the Year.
Attwell was recently married to Michelle Matthews, a previous winner of the award. Quite a publishing power couple, then!
He will join other regional winners of the award at the upcoming London Book Fair, where the overall International Young Publisher of the Year will be announced.
It’s not certain who the other regional winners are as the British Council’s info page on the award leads with a story from 2007. But we’re sure that Attwell will prove stiff competition!
BOOK SA joins the EBW team in wishing him the best of luck.
