As part of the Conakry International Children’s Book Fair (7-10 November 2022), initiated and coordinated by Ganndal in Guinea, some twenty publishing houses from French-speaking Africa are meeting in Conakry for a training programme tailored to the needs of the finalists of the Orange Book Prize in Africa and the members of the Alliance.
The meetings in Conakry will be structured in several stages:
- a workshop on “Typography, composition, correction”
- a workshop on publishing partnerships in the French-speaking world followed by exchanges on publishers’ catalogues
- working sessions between the publishing houses involved in the “Terres solidaires” collection (deliberations of the Reading Committee and choice of the next titles in the collection in particular)
The participants will also take part in the inauguration of the Fair and will exhibit their country’s children’s books during the Fair.
