Over 900 titles for children and teenagers are published in Slovenia annually, representing almost a quarter of all book production. The appearance of Slovenia as honorary guest at the Bologna Children's Book Fair is a unique opportunity to focus attention on our book publishing industry and rich creativity and tradition in the field of books for children and young adults.
The Bologna Children's Book Fair is, beside the book fair in Frankfurt, the international platform at which the greatest number of Slovene publishers are presented, either independently or as part of the Slovene national stand.
In recent years representatives from Slovenia have often been selected to present their opus within the Bologna Book Fair, let us mention Peter Škerl, Alenka Sottler, Lila Prap, Maja Kastelic, Andreja Peklar and Ana Zavadlav.
Slovenian Book Agency is in charge of the project organisation.
