Conferences and Events
The annual CBI conference is a weekend-long celebration of the very best in books for young people from home and abroad.
Featuring some of the most exciting names in writing, illustration, publishing and criticism, this relaxed and friendly event is an opportunity for teachers, booksellers, librarians, academics, artists and other professionals – or anyone else with a passion for children’s literature – to meet old favourites and discover new voices.
The conference also includes presentation of the annual CBI award. This award is made to an individual in recognition of an outstanding contribution to children’s books. All CBI members every year are warmly encouraged to nominate for this award.
CBI are always looking for new partners to help us bring the best in children’s books to the widest audience. If you are interested in participating in the next CBI Conference please contact programme officer Aoife Murray at firstname.lastname@example.org or 01 8727475.
