Last weekend Curious Fox attended their first Federation of Children’s Book Groups Annual Conference!
The Federation is a national voluntary self-funded organisation whose aim is to promote enjoyment and interest in children’s books and reading. The Federation also encourages the availability of books for children of all ages, from first picture books to young adult. Members include parents and carers, teachers and librarians, along with individual and professional members, who all want to nurture a love of reading through the sharing of books with children.
This year’s conference was titled “power of the page.”
On the first night of the conference Curious Fox sponsored the pre-dinner drinks with some “Foxy Fizz!” Managing Director, Miles Stevens-Hoare, introduced Curious Fox to the Federation and author, Sharon Gosling, spoke about what books meant to her as she grew up, and read an exhilarating extract from her book The Diamond Thief. Miles then followed up with a toast to the event and to Curious Fox.
We really enjoyed the weekend where we met lots of interesting librarians and reading groups who all enjoyed hearing about our fantastic launch list!
