The Bookseller's Rising Stars is an annual list of the book industry's up and comers, first run in 2011 and founded by The Bookseller's managing editor Tom Tivnan.

The list comprises of forward-thinking individuals from all sectors of the trade whose actions have caught the eye and who have been singled out as possible leaders of the future.

The Bookseller's Rising Stars is sponsored by Frankfurt Book Fair, an international trade fair for content, the centre of the international media world and a major cultural event. The fair is held over five days in October.
