Salon du Livre de Montreal
23-27 November 2022
After the first stop at the Frankfurt Book Fair, and the Sharjah International Book Fair (SIBF), next on the schedule was Canada and the Salon du Livre de Montréal, from 23 to 27 November.
In Montreal, Bologna Children's Book Fair (Booth 1325) layed on an exciting programme that included three exhibitions showcasing examples of Italian excellence in both illustration and children’s publishing. Guided tours of exhibitions were given by both the exhibition curators and invited Italian illustrators. Also in Montreal, several of Italy’s iconic illustrators were present, like the great Lorenzo Mattotti. Other attractions included the Illustrator’s Survival Corner – one of the most sought-after spaces of every BCBF edition – together with another first for the Grand Tour: the well-known Illustrators Wall, a live painting space this time dedicated to Canadian illustrators at the show.
BolognaBookPlus and Bologna Licensing Trade Fair/ Kids also were in Montreal to present the new features and opportunities during the Bologna event in 2023.
