The annual Childrens Books Ireland will take place on 23 and 24 September this year, at the Lighthouse Cinema in Dublin. Under the theme of Movement and Migration, we will gather for what must be one of the most exciting and adventurous events of the book world. And the visiting authors, illustrators and general childrens books people in the line-up promise to make the conference outstanding; Rob Biddulph, Kate DiCamillo, Sally Gardner, Lucy Cousins, Anna Carey, Cecelia Ahern....and so many more! It is going to be fantastic, so book your ticket now.
(If you want some genuine insight into the conference, there is a great article in the latest issue of Inis magazine by a wonderful and passionate childrens' bookseller and friend, MaryBrigid Turner. Check it out!)
