Bologna Children’s Book Fair – Opening Day!

The 59th Bologna Children’s Book Fair opens this morning (March 21) for its first in-person stating since 2019, there’s both excitement and tension, of course.

The excitement lies in the fact that the world’s largest trade show focused on the book business for younger readers is back on its feet amid the still-ongoing coronavirus COVID-19 pandemic. A popular destination for professionals in the world publishing industry in any year, it’s a point of pride that the show is progressing beyond a digital evocation of itself—which Bologna was the first to do among the major trade shows.
