AFCC 2020 returns this week with more than 40 featured writers, publishers and speakers from Singapore and around the world to discuss how the children’s books industry is responding and adapting to the global pandemic.
Exploring the theme “Voyages”, AFCC will examine pressing topics such as the role of children’s books during a crisis; how to build resilience in children through books; the effects of digitalisation on book fairs and festivals; and how to build virtual communities. We will also take a close look at how schools can make two popular genres, poetry and comics, part of students’ essential reading.
