Children's Books Ireland has just released the yummy programme for its next conference: Nurturing the Seed: Prospects and Possibilities for Children’s Books - May 15th–16th 2010. On the menu (among others): Marcus Sedgwick (whose swordhand is singing, when it's not wielding a revolver), Elena Odriozola (who's sowing the seeds in the picture above), Sarah Rees Brennan (of Demon's Lexicon fame), Jane Mitchell, Michael Rosen, Siobhán Parkinson, Anthony Browne et al. who need no introduction. The conference will also introduce Ireland’s first Children’s Laureate.
Speaking of which, Mags Walsh (from CBI) will reveal all about this new initiative at the Dublin Book Festival at 10.30 am next Monday (8th of March).
Hope to see you here, there and everywhere!
