Bologna Children's Book Fair

As during every springtime, The Children's and Young People's Book Fair is held in Bologna, Italy. It is the principal Book Fair devoted to this type of public and this year, 2007, it will take place from the 24 to the 27 of April. Also as in other years, the group of Italian literary translators, Biblit is organising and directing the Centre for Translators which, over the four days the event will last, will become a meeting place for all those working in and with translations.

The Centre for Translators provides the various international translation associations the opportunity of both receiving and distributing all kinds of information in this respect.
