In this talk Ferelith Hordon, ex Childrens librarian at Wandsworth, member of the YLG group
and editor of IBBY will talk about the International Board on Books for Young People.
Why is it important and what does it do? Where does it come from?  How does IBBY UK fit
in? I would like to throw some light on IBBY, its history, its organisation and activities. Today
questions of diversity, translation , empathy - awareness of the international aspect of
publishing for young  people are  being actively discussed. These are all at the heart of
IBBY's mission.

ILIG Informals are not lectures; they are informal, but informative, early evening meetings
with a short talk on a theme of international interest plus plenty of time for questions and
networking. They are open to all and absolutely free. Light refreshments are served which is
why we ask you to let ILIG know you are coming by booking online
