Enter the wonderful world of books and reading and join us for the second edition of The London Children’s Book Fair at Parasol unit which celebrates the best of contemporary children’s literature. Open to all from toddlers to teens and families, this year’s edition focuses on storytelling as everyone has a special story to tell! Admission to the book fair is free for children and adults. It takes place at Parasol unit’s galleries on Friday + Saturday 15 - 16 December 2017.

The 2017 London Children’s Book Fair aims to promote literacy amongst children, young people and families in the community by encouraging the joy of reading with literary and art workshops, readings by favourite authors, poetry and storytelling sessions. Featuring some of the most innovative and imaginative publishers, authors and illustrators of books for children and young people, this family event also includes book signings, educational workshops and a collaborative live drawing session with this year’s Fair illustrator Emily Rand.

Discover new and inspiring books, ideas, prints and designs from internationally renowned publishers, authors, illustrators, libraries and charities - it’s an opportunity to meet inspiring authors and creators, and buy the perfect gifts for Christmas – books!

The London Children’s Book Fair provides audiences of all different backgrounds and ages with an opportunity to find their individual creative voice and share it with one another.
