Every year, we offer two to three conferences to our entire regional network to explore themes that inspire us.
Participation in these meetings is free and requires prior registration. These conferences are most often face-to-face but can sometimes be offered by video.
We invite thinkers and academics, professionals and specialists in children’s literature.
Alongside the proposals from libraries and bookstores, we also invite authors and illustrators.
