Biennial National Conference

The Children's Book Council of Australia will be holding its 12th National Conference at The Menzies Sydney, 19-21 May 2016.  

Enjoy two days of Book Heaven with a stimulating, varied and inspiring program featuring some of Australia's most loved and respected children's authors and illustrators.

After 70 years, there are myriad possibilities for the CBCA’s future and the future of reading. This theme is creative, open to interpretation, shows potential and inspires hope in the future – all qualities that we wish to underpin the 2016 National Conference.

We aim to provide a stimulating, varied and inspiring program that will feature the best Australian children’s book creators. It will also provide a forum for discussion and debate, especially as Quality Literature is central to the Australian English Curriculum.
