CBF in Meath
Every October thousands of children in Meath attend events with authors, illustrators and storytellers and engage in workshops on writing, illustration, poetry, etc.
Most events are pre-booked by school groups. And in more recent years there has been a number of events for families to enjoy together during our Family Weekend.
The children's book festival brochure is circulated to Primary schools in early September.
Bookings will open for the school events for CBF 2023 on Monday 4th of September. Bookings for the Family Days which will take place in Navan and Trim Libraries on Saturday, 14th of October, will open at the end of September.
