Bongiorno from Bologna!
As you can see, the city is already welcoming those who are arriving for the world's only book fair dedicated exclusively to children's books.
We arrived this afternoon, got settled in to our accommodations, and after some shopping for essentials (gotta have our healthy snacks!), we capped off the day by eating dinner with some of the other SCBWI crew that are here for the fair.
Tomorrow we'll be setting up the booth so that we'll be ready to greet fair-goers bright and early Monday morning. We'll be posting updates here on the blog each evening, along with snapshots throughout the day over on the @SCBWISwiss Twitter account.
You can see even more at @SCBWIBologna on Twitter and Instagram. Follow the tag #BBF18SCBWI to see all the posts about SCBWI at the fair.
So until tomorrow, Ciao!
Willkommen! Bienvenue! Benvenuto! Bainvegnì! Welcome!
