Who are we?

Founded in 1962 as an informal association of children’s book editors, we are a not- for-profit organisation run entirely by a committee of volunteers from the industry. Over the past 50 years, the CBC has expanded to embrace anyone with a professional interest in children’s books, from publishers, librarians, authors and illustrators, to teachers, booksellers and agents.

What We Do

Each year, we put on 10-12 children’s book events in order to promote, explore and celebrate the importance of children’s publishing. These can range from Meet and Critique evenings, to panel debates about everything from digital futures to where to draw the line in teen literature. Hosted by a diverse range of industry experts, we believe that discussion and debate are key factors in driving the children’s book industry forward, and audience participation is actively encouraged.

In order for industry professionals to meet in a less formal setting, we also organise several purely social events, from pub quizzes to spring and christmas drinks evenings.
