Each year we launch a new collection of children’s books in European languages and this year the launch will take place at the Victoria Library in Westminster, London on the 4th of October at 5.30pm.
Come and join us! Together with John Lake, past Chair of the IFLA Public Libraries Standing Committee, and the other members of Eurolis, you will have the opportunity to meet Sharon King-Chai, author of Starbird, one of the books included in the 2021 collection, which has been shortlisted for the prestigious Carnegie/Greenaway Awards for 2021.
She will be delighted to meet you in person and to let you know how the spark of an idea comes and how her illustrations transforms it into a beautiful story.
Attendance is limited to just 30 librarians or teachers so pre-booking is essential!
