Hey, do you love children’s books? Looking for a new opportunity to chat with lots of other adults who are passionate about children’s literature? Well, clear your diary for every other Sunday evening from now on…
The aim of the forum is for librarians, teachers, bloggers and anyone else interested in children’s books (including YA) the chance to talk about new releases, favourites and anything else of interest surrounding children’s books.
The forum will run every fortnight on a Sunday evening between 8pm and 9pm (UK time. 3pm start time EST, 12midday PST I think, and 10 or 11 hours ahead for Australia/New Zealand) and will be hosted by the Federation @FCBGChair. Using the hashtag #fcbgbkgrp chat will be directed by the participants but at certain times of the year a theme will be suggested inspired by book events throughout the year such as National Share A Story Month in May or National Non Fiction Day in November.
The launch date for the first forum is 20th March 2011 and every other Sunday from then.
Here are some friendly faces you might see there:
