Registration is now open for this exciting International conference on children’s literature to be held at Imperial College from 23 – 26th August 2012. See www.ibbycongress2012.org
In order to make it easier for delegates from the UK and around the world to attend this rare event (it’s the first time it has been held in the UK for 30 years) IBBY have begun registration early to allow delegates to spread the cost by paying in three instalments. Of course it’s also possible to pay all in one go as well.
As well as the great line-up of speakers there will be seminars and discussions, round tables, professional meetings and exciting additional events such as the presentation of the Hans Christian Andersen Medal and the IBBY Asahi Award. The full programme will be announced in January. We would also like to thank The School Library Association and CILIP’s School Libraries and Youth Libraries Groups for holding a joint conference next year in order to reduce the number of conferences on offer to librarians and teachers. We really appreciate the help of all the organisations who are so positive about the IBBY 2012 World Congress and the support you are giving us.
