Hurray! We’re delighted to host this year's Children’s Books Ireland Book of the Year Awards ceremony. Now in their 27th year, the CBI Book of the Year Awards celebrate writing and illustration excellence in books for children and young people by Irish authors and illustrators.
Broadcaster and book lover Rick O'Shea will announce the winners. Children's Books Ireland has worked closely with young readers who chose the Children's Choice Award winner though the special shadowing scheme. In partnership with ILFDublin and Dublin UNESCO City of Literature, a number of participating shadowing groups will meet shortlisted authors and illustrators throughout the week of the festival.
