Conor Kostick to visit China for IBBY awards

Epic is listed on the IBBY Honour List for 2006, and Conor is to visit Beijing to attend the 30th IBBY world conference. IBBY also administers the Hans Christian Andersen Award in recognition of a "lasting contribution to children's literature". Alas I don't recognise many of the recent winners, but in the 1960s the winners included this fantastic trio of writers: Astrid Lindgren, Erich Kästner and Tove Jansson. Unfortunately IBBY Ireland's website is a bit out of date, but I was able to discover that Michael O'Brien (the founder of O'Brien Press) is the president of IBBY Ireland.
