Feedback from the 2013 conference included: “Excellent range of speakers covering all levels of children’s books as well is styles of speaking from the silly/funny to the serious. Well designed programme.” “The programme and design of the conference exceeded expectations. I found the atmosphere welcoming, warm and friendly and I was very pleased I had decided to attend.” “I love the fact that I can get together with like-minded people who love books and reading as much as me. Listening to authors and illustrators is a wonderful way of inspiring us to share our joy of books with others.” You can read a report from a first time conference attendee in the Summer 2012 newsletter. 2013’s conference took place in Bury St. Edmunds, March 22nd-24th.
