The Youth Libraries Group National Conference will return virtually in November 2020
Taking place from 13th to 19th of September, wherever you are, the Representations of Place conference will explore landscape, identity and own voices, developing the opportunities we can offer children and young people to interact with the ever-changing world around them through literature and reading. Research will be presented by leading academics and a selection of exciting and innovative authors and illustrators will provide inspiration
The conference will extend across the whole week to avoid screen fatigue for our delegates and all sessions will be archived and will be available to view at your leisure after the conference has concluded.There will be an extensive Virtual Exhibition which will also be archived and accessible after the conference and a virtual goody bag for all delegates
The conference will also include our membership's celebration of our very own Carnegie and Kate Greenaway Medals and the presentation of our honorary memberships, the YLG Award and the YLG Publisher of the Year, making this an unmissable opportunity for all those interested in libraries and children's literature.
