The theme for the Congress is "Literature in a multi-literate world". There is a fabulous line-up of speakers already confirmed, with more to come.
The attached documents contain some info about the Congress, and also a Call for Presentations. This is the first time the IBBY Congress will have been held in New Zealand, and it will bring together children's literature experts of all kinds from around the world. Please think about whether you might contribute a presentation or poster, it would be great if the Congress included some of the terrific work NZ School Librarians are doing.
Registrations open in September. And the call for presentations closes on 30 September 2015.
More information is available directly from the IBBY Congress website here.
