The 53rd ‘Fiera del libro per ragazzi’ will be held from Monday 4 to Thursday 7 April 2016 in Bologna, Italy. The Dutch Foundation for Literature will present the brochure Children’s Books from Holland.

At the event, the winners of the most important international prizes for children’s books will be announced: the Hans Christian Andersen Prize en the Astrid Lindgren Memorial Award (ALMA). The Guest of Honor of 2016 will be Germany. At the heart of the presentation will be an approximately 300 square metre exhibition of original works by a selection of talented illustrators living in Germany who deserve to be discovered internationally. Another part of the presentation will be an exhibition of books by artists who are already established.
