If you’re in Madrid on December 27, 28 or 29th, you have a great plan: Boookids, the first International Children’s Book Fair in Madrid (at Conde Duque).

Boookids will be a fair which the public can discover international publishers as Corraini (Italy) or Tara Books (India), self-published projects as LELO Books, little treasures as Ediciones tralarí, collections focused on illustration (Stack Editions), drawing practical books (Silonia) or specialized libraries.

But wait! Boookids also includes workshops about fanzines, illustration, drawing, video or construction coordinated by artists such as Antonio Ladrillo, Milimbo, Emo Díaz, Violeta Lopiz, Bandiz Studio or Olga de Dios.
