The Bologna Children’s Book Fair is one of the biggest annual events in the publishing world and it’s built entirely around children’s books! Publishers, illustrators, literary agents, authors, translators, licensors and licensees visit The Bologna Children’s Book Fair every spring to do business and experience the dizzying and vast crop of children’s books produced that year, from all over the world. This year, the UAE and Arab world are the guests of honour and so their illustrators, visual artists and storytellers will also be specially featured. The Illustrators Exhibition and Bologna Ragazzi Awards are also key components of the event.
So, this Face-to-Face trip will obviously appeal to those of you interested in working in the wonderful world of Children’s publishing. However, it would be extremely remiss of us if we did not also take the opportunity to explore the culturally rich and extraordinary city of Bologna itself. Students who are as interested in exploring the city as visiting the Festival are equally welcome, and we will cater for these students equally.
