An important official delegation from China will be coming to Bologna for the Children’s Book Fair to lay the basis for a far-reaching events programme that in 2018 will showcase China and her culture both at the Fair and in the city.
Coordinated by CCPGGroup - the huge publishing group from Beijing that for years has brought an increasingly large collective of Chinese publishers to the Bologna Children’s Book Fair in Hall 26 – the China Guest of Honour programme will provide exciting insights into both Chinese illustration and children’s literature, a sector that in recent years has undergone unprecedented growth and internationalization.
This year’s Book Fair will be giving a preview of what we can expect. Preparations are well underway for three not-to-be-missed events on Tuesday 5th April:
10 a.m. – 2 p.m. : The Silk Road Childrens Books Matchmaking Meeting
2 p.m. – 4 p.m.: Let’s tell a story together - a dialogue between the Chinese Children’s Picture Books and the World
from 4 p.m. onwards: reception to celebrate the work of most important Chinese author Cao Wenxuan, 2016 H.C.Andersen Shortlist Candidate
