The Bookseller Rising Stars of 2021

9 July 2021

The Bookseller has announced its 2021 Rising Stars-the annual list of the book trade's up-and-comers and leaders of the future.

Many congratulations to all the Rising Stars with special mentions for Nyla Ahmad (Scottish Book Trust), Jo Dingley (Canongate Books) and Sasha de Buyl (now at Cúirt after many years working in the Scottish book world).

This year's Shooting Star-the one person on the list they give a little bit more recognition to-is HarperFiction's Phoebe Morgan, who drove the recent Books for Vaccines online auction, which raised £60,000 for Covid relief in poorer countries.

In The Bookseller of 9 July 2021, Tom Tivnan says that 'a clear trend for this year's group is that they have been tested by the coronavirus, but emerged all the stronger for it'.
