During the weekend of April 7th to 9th, the FCBG celebrated children’s literature and reading for pleasure with the annual FCBG Conference. The theme for 2017 was Write Around the World, and was hosted by Reading Book Group at The Oratory School.
The programme was packed with exciting authors and illustrators, debuts and established, and a host of publishing insiders and industry experts, including the Children’s Laureate, Chris Riddell.
Speakers included historian and TV presenter Lucy Worsley, performance poet AF Harrold, authors and illustrators Jon Walter, Jo Cotterill, Giancarlo Gemin, Martin Brown, Kes Gray, Rachel Bright, Emma Shoard, Cas Lester, Petr Horacek, Nicola Davies and a whole host of others. We are delighted to post some photos of the event below.
