 Reading Round the World

 Our flagship project Reading Round the World in 2009 was a UK-wide programme running 43 workshops and events working directly with children and bringing them together with international books and their creators in schools and libraries.  We collected valuable material about young people's attitudes towards books in translation, upon which we continue to build our future work.  

The international authors and illustrators who took part in visiting the UK included:

Sarah Ardizzone - Translator (UK)
Pablo Bernasconi (Argentina)
Jutta Bauer (Germany)
Anders Brundin (Sweden)
Wendy Cooling (UK) - (1941-2020)
