Do you know about the FCBG conference? FCBG stands for ‘The Federation of Children’s Book Group’ and their conference is a thing of utter joy. Seriously. If you work with children, libraries, teaching, whatever, or are just interested in children’s literature (holler!),then get yourself along to it if you can. I was lucky enough to attend the 2012 one and I was borderline evangelical afterwards. It was basically like getting an extra Christmas.
This year’s conference features Meg Rosoff (!), Helen Oxenbury (!!) and Anthony Browne (!!!) amongst many other wonderful names. I do reccomend attending it if you can. It’s one of those ‘build me a willow cabin at your gates’ sort of conferences, as you will not want to leave.
