Bologna Children bookfair See you
in Bologna

12-15 April
2021
Always here

Bologna Children's Book Fair says goodbye for now to the over 60,000 friends who - distant but close - met this year, not in Bologna but for the Special Online Edition. And there were - we were - really very many of us!

We have spent a marvellous few days talking and working together, as we have always done. Even if the lights have now gone out on the Book Fair, another spotlight is already trained on the many events and initiatives on offer in the coming months. The BCBF digital stage will remain in full swing with meetings and a host of projects open to you all.

Follow us on our new blog – FairTales – and on our social channels. Sign up to our newsletter. In a word, stay tuned!

Distant but close.
Always here.
