IRSCL Biennial Congress

The final programme of the biennial conference of the IRSCL (International Research Society for Children's Literature) that is taking place in South Africa from 20-24 August is taking shape and will be finalised within the next week. This is the first time that a congress of such international stature in children's literature will be held on the African continent. More than 60 experts in the field from all over the globe will be delivering papers on various aspects of children's literature.

The organisers are delighted that a few very special South African children's books will be launched during the conference: My mother hates television by Lesley Beake; Yebo, Jamela! by Niki Daly; The Waterbearer by Dianne Hofmeyr and Nozincwadi - Mother of Books by Gcina Mhlophe.

The organisers were also able to negotiate with Klein Kariba, the resort where the conference will take place, a special tariff for South African delegates. South Africans can attend the conference for R 1900. This includes the registration, accommodation in single rooms in the chalets, all meals and social functions. Transport to and from Johannesburg International Airport will be R350 extra.
