Children's Books Ireland's Annual International Conference is back!

The Children's Books Ireland International Conference is a weekend-long celebration of the very best in children's books. Taking place in September, this annual event is a unique opportunity to critically reflect on the impact, imagination and importance of books for young people. Anyone with an interest in and a passion for children's books is welcome to attend and participate in what is always an outward-looking, lively and thought-provoking event.
