Toute première à Bologna international children’s book fair
My head was spinning with so much new amazing places and people ! Bologna is gorgeous, and pictures do not give a true sense of how breathtaking it is to walk these streets and squares… I am very grateful to the Hamelin team for inviting me over to talk about Libro-gioco (livre-jeux, playfull book) with Hervé Tullet and Sophie Van der Linden. I was very impressed and touched by the events they organize to promote children’s literature, but also by their behind-the-scene relentless work towards the community. The conversation took place in Biblioteca Salaborsa, just amazing. A big thank you to the team behind The Illustrators Survival Corner of the book fair for inviting me to give a workshop there, it was such an intense and interesting experience for me ! Thank you to the Montreuil book fair and Institut Français for their support ! It was great to have the opportunity to meet my Italian publisher, Fatatrac, and Portuguese publisher, Orfeu Negro !! on the picture, Carla Oliveira from Orfeu Negro, myself and Sabine Loauli from Grandes Personnes.
