Children's Books Ireland International Conference

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.

Children's Books Ireland invites speakers from Ireland and around the world to energise, excite, inform and inspire our delegates. Past guests have included several internationally renowned authors, illustrators, publishers and other children's books experts. All are welcome to enjoy this weekend event with other children's books enthusiasts from Ireland and further afield.
