Book now for IBBY/NCRCL Conference – Beyond the Book

It is now possibly to book your place for our annual IBBY/NCRCL conference. We often sell out, so I would suggest booking soon!

19th Annual IBBY/NCRCL MA Conference: Beyond the Book
University of Roehampton, London
Saturday 10 NOVEMBER 2012 at Grove House, Froebel College

Now, more than ever, people are debating what constitutes a book. With the development of ebooks, apps, self-publishing and fan fiction – as well as the popularity of book adaptations to film, TV, stage and other venues – book boundaries are extended and broken all the time.

Our exciting programme includes children’s book historian Matthew Grenby; innovative digital publishers Nosy Crow, Winged Chariot, and Hot Key Books; award-winning author Sita Brahmachari; school librarian Kay Waddilove talking to young book reviewers; national children’s dramatist David Wood; Pop Up director Dylan Calder speaking with author Candy Gourlay, and author/illustrators James Mayhew and Karin Littlewood; and more…

You can find the most up-to-date programme here: https://ncrcl.wordpress.com/british-ibbyncrcl-ma-conference/

The day also features a range of stimulating parallel sessions on themes such as performance and adaptation, online writing communities, merchandising and the book as material object, and new forms of publishing.

Please contact Lucy Parsons on l.parsons@roehampton.ac.uk for further information.
