Bologna 2012


Going to the Bologna Book Fair had long been on my bucket list. But I never dreamed I would be invited to showcase my books and my art there. Through that showcase I connected with Book People from all over the world, and directly from that connection, I have a new book coming out in 2014.You just never know where opportunities are going to come from & where things are going to land.

Susan Eaddy (showcase presenter 2012)



If you want to showcase your work, please send a one-page proposal to Christopher by January 31, 2014, describing your display set-up and details of what you would do with your one or two hours of SCBWI Bologna booth time. Please note there are no charges for these times and that only PAL books are eligible for display. As well an interesting proposal for the showcase will always be appealing.

Please also enclose

  • a one-page resume listing your major publications (include date and publishing house)
  • awards received
  • sales figures
  • promotional experience
  • and also preferred day to be at the showcase.

Successful applications will be advised at the end of January at which time you can also nominate your preferred showcase times.

From around the world we have members showcasing their titles throughout the fair.
