ICBD Festival 2023 in Japan

The International Children’s Book Day (ICBD) Festival 2023 was held in Tokyo from 17 to 27 March, both online and in person.
JBBY members from various paths of life prepared over 10 events for children to learn and experience different professions related to children’s books. About 600 books—including the IBBY Honour List and JBBY recommended books—were displayed at the Festival’s venue, and translators, editors and booksellers led book games, quizzes and workshops to the great joy of numerous children and their families.
In addition, there were online events, including an author’s lecture on creative writing, a collaborative workshop between illustrators and children, and crafts and singing activities, which attracted many participants from Japan and overseas.
