The Authors Festival is a window for the promotion of the world’s most acclaimed children’s writers and illustrators attending CCBF, who either create books for children or write and research about children’s books.
The Authors Festival is also a bridge between the Fair’s official programme designed for publishing professionals and the events offered to young readers and other public visitors, many of them co-organised with local publishers. It encompasses seminars, book launches, reading and book signing sessions.
In 2019, 17 children’s writers and illustrators are featured in the Authors Festival. They will be actively involved in the CCBF professional programme taking place at the Official Conference Room and at the Illustrators Survival Corner.
