This event is aimed at Black, Indigenous, People of Colour in children’s literature publishing – we welcome all BIPOC (established and emerging) writers, illustrators, editors, publishers, librarians, and more!

Let us get together to celebrate our differences and our common ground in creating diverse children’s literature. The event will create space to connect, to share trials and triumphs, to learn from each other’s experiences and expertise. And to have a beautiful and joyous time while doing all that!
The evening will include an engaging input, a networking session, book speed-dating, and an open space session where you can share your latest projects and ideas. Please come prepared: bring beloved children’s books and information on your own work.

This event is hosted by Warda Ahmed, Jasmina El Bouamraoui, and Chantal-Fleur Sandjon in cooperation with booc e.V.

According to the updated rules in Berlin since 15.11., we follow the 2G-rule, i.e. you need to present a proof of full vaccination or recovery of Covid-19 before entering the event.
