Bologna Children's Book Fair

Outskirts Press helps self-publishing authors promote their books. The best way for a children’s book author to get industry-leading exposure is at the Bologna Children's Book Fair where they can be seen by over 30,000 book industry professionals.


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!

Do you want to secure foreign rights for your book and have children across the globe enjoying your work?

According to Bologna's website, "In Bologna authors, illustrators, literary agents, licensors and licensees, packagers, distributors, printers, booksellers, and librarians meet to sell and buy copyright, find the very best of children’s publishing and multimedia production, generate and gather new contacts while strengthening professional relationships, discover new business opportunities, discuss and debate the latest sector trends."

As a self-publishing children's book author trying to launch a successful writing career, you cannot afford to miss the Bologna 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 titles. A representative will be on-hand to personally answer questions about your book. All inquiries we receive related to your book will be forwarded directly to you for personal follow-up. 

Bologna Book Fairs take place in March. Reserve your spot in the book exhibit no children's author should miss by clicking the "Add to Cart" button!
