Bologna Children's Book Fair
Over 30,000 professional visitors (like agents, editors, writers, readers, and parents) flock to the Bologna Children's Book Fair each year to experience the world of children’s books, illustrations, and multimedia content. And your children’s or young adult book can be a part of it!

Make Sure Your Children's Book is Featured at the Bologna Book Fair
For nearly 60 years the Bologna Children's Book Fair has been the children’s publishing event. Thousands of exhibitors and professional visitors converge on the event each year to explore the ever changing children’s publishing landscape dominated by the printed book—which continues to be the most important influence on the children's media world.
If you want to secure foreign rights for your book and have children across the globe enjoying your work, you cannot afford to miss the Bologna Children's Book Fair.
By arranging exhibition through Outskirts Press, your book will receive valuable, face-out exposure on an exclusive shelf with 4 other Outskirts Press books. This international event is a great way to effortlessly network with industry professionals on a global scale. Get your book in front of:
- foreign publishers
- literary agents
- copyright dealmakers
- global licensers
- digital media companies
- film and production companies across print, audio, TV, film and digital channels
- distribution companies
- and more...
Translation is how words travel the world—it is the basis for cultures to respect diversity and understand on another. Securing literary translation rights is a big part of these events; and a huge opportunity for self-publishing authors—make sure your book is a part of that.
Imagine having a publicist on-site at these events who can promote your book to these industry insiders. That's "hands off" international book marketing at its finest.
All inquiries Outskirts Press receives about your book will be forwarded directly to you for personal follow-up in a "post-show" wrap-up.
Bologna Book Fairs take place in March.
Reserve your spot in the book exhibit no children's author should miss!

author of Avoiding Self Imposed Adversities
From the beginning, and throughout the process of publishing my first book, I felt that I was in the hands of a pro. Dana always took the time to answer my questions in detail and swiftly, and if she didn't have 100% confidence, she researched the question and got back to me. I was very pleased with her and I am also thankful that I was paired with her as an Author Rep.

Bridget, as well as the entire Outskirts Press team working with me, are exceptional. They held my hand through the entire process in addition to providing me with welcomed support and encouragement. I am looking forward to our next project together. I have recommended Outskirts Press to several freelance authors in my area. Thank you for making a potentially hectic journey so enjoyable and so satisfying.

I was very happy with my author rep's responses to me. She did a superb job of answering my questions and helping me through the editing process. She was always available when I needed her. I'm delighted with the outcome--my book looks good and it's selling! Thank you.

author of Children: My Heritage - A Testimony
The one-on-one with Lisa was great. Especially the phone call picking out styles, font, cover template etc. She even got a vote on the color. I so wanted to have my daughter's painting as the art work on the cover and she gave me a way to do that. Her guidance helped turn my dream into a reality and sometimes it is still hard to believe until I look at my book. Thank you.
Nancy L. Regas
author of The Art of Being a School Counselor
What a blockbuster learning experience I had being a part of self publishing with Outskirts Press! I felt empowered to the next challenge by both Allison and Dana. Their professional guidance and clear instructions when I needed help was crucial to feeling I could tackle the next step. I look forward to the experience with the marketing team. Thanks, Outskirts Press.

Outskirts Press changed my life for the better. They turned my adoption memoir into a book that is not only beautiful to look at, it is pleasurable to read, easy to purchase online, and in less than a month already has had a profound impact on many people. A truly amazing company with a heart. Deepest gratitude!
