PRESS RELEASE JUNE 21st 2012
Registration Opens on July 2nd for Day Delegates to IBBY 2012 World Congress
IBBY UK is pleased to announce that registration for day delegates to this amazing International Conference will open on Monday July 2nd, online at www.ibbycongress2012.org
Hundreds of international delegates have already signed up to enjoy the brilliant line-up of speakers and events. We already have registrations from as far afield as Mongolia, Japan, Tunisia, Argentina, Lebanon, Mexico, Malaysia, China, Korea, the United States, Azerbaijan, India, Canada and of course most European counties too. This incredible conference on Children's and young adult literature has not been held in the UK for 30 years, so don't miss this wonderful opportunity.
The programme will be a mix of keynote addresses, panel discussions, professional papers, poster sessions as well as presentations of the illustrious Hans Christian Andersen Awards and the IBBY Asahi Reading Promotion Awards. Lots of authors and illustrators will speak in lunchbreaks and breakfast sessions - in fact the programme is packed so full you'll have to remind yourself to eat!! Three UK Laureates, Julia Donaldson, Anthony Browne and Michael Morpurgo, get us off to a great start, and it just goes on and on. The only problem with day registration is
choosing which day to come.
There are limited numbers of places each day, so book your place as soon as you can to be sure of your first choice.
For full details of the programme see http://www.ibbycongress2012.org/programme-outline.php and mark July 2nd in your dairy!
