Some photos from our Festival of Children’s Literature

We celebrated 45 years of the Federation of Children’s Book Group, and our receipt of the Eleanor Farjen Award on Saturday with our Festival of Children’s Literature at the Birmingham Conservatoire. The day was a great deal of fun and it was wonderful to see so many of you there.

Over the next few days I’ll be posting a selection of images so you can look out for friends and family, or get a flavour of the day if you weren’t able to make it yourself.

    It was a great day. We gave up a relaxing lunch when we bought tickets to fit in an extra event, but it was well worth it.
