PRESS RELEASE FEBRUARY 2012

Programme for Crossing Boundaries: Translations and Migrations

 

We’re delighted to say that the full programme for this exciting conference is now on
our website at http://www.ibbycongress2012.org/programme-outline.php

 

There is already a great line-up of speakers including Anthony Browne, Aidan
Chambers, Julia Donaldson, Jamila Gavin, Elizabeth Laird, Bart Moeyaert,
Michael Morpurgo, Beverley Naidoo, Michael Rosen and Shaun Tan. In addition we have some wonderful speakers in extra sessions sponsored by publishers – Kai Meyer, Anthea Bell, Verna Wilkins and Candy Gourlay to name but a few. Speakers for panel sessions will be announced in a few weeks time.

 

We received over 300 proposals for papers, and 140 of these have been selected for
the Congress. These will be given in parallel sessions on Friday 24th and Saturday 25th August. We are currently in the process of selecting poster sessions, and will announce these by the end of February.

 

Pre and Post Congress Tours

With our partners International Friends we have created a truly unique set of tours
focussing on children’s (and some adult) literature, from walking tours of the
London of Peter Pan, Shakespeare and Charles Dickens to days celebrating Green
Knowe, Tom’s Midnight Garden, Dickens, Harry Potter, Roald Dahl and the
literary heritage of Oxford. There are also longer tours: one exploring the
Lake District and the world of Beatrix Potter and Arthur Ransome, and the other
visiting Seven Stories and the Bronte’s’ Yorkshire. See them all at http://www.ibbycongress2012.org/programme-tours.php

 

Registration and accommodation

Registration and accommodation bookings are now open at http://www.ibbycongress2012.org/register.php

There has not been an IBBY World Congress in the UK for 30 years, and we want to make this the must-come-to event of the decade. If you haven’t booked yet, do it
now!

We hope that you will be able to share this information through your regular networks and are very grateful for your help in spreading the word and encouraging people to attend. We really appreciate the help of all the organisations who are so positive about the IBBY 2012 World Congress, and the support you are giving us.

Thank you

...four priority areas for development which have been tested and corroborated by stakeholders:

1     place the library as the hub of the community

2     make the most of digital technology and creative media

3     ensure that libraries are resilient and sustainable

4     deliver the right skills for those who work in libraries
