Young readers and their families can enjoy IFOA’s world-renowned programming at book- and writing-focused events throughout the year.

Every May: Find out the winners of the annual Forest of Reading® awards at Forest of Reading® Festival of Trees™, and get up-close and personal with an author at a reading/Q&A event as part of ALOUD: a Celebration for Young Readers.

During March Break and Summer: learn the tricks of the trade at Junior Authors Camp.

In October: meet an author and get hands-on in a bookplate-making workshop during YoungIFOA’s School Visits programme (part of the International Festival of Authors). This year, YoungIFOA proudly presents the winners of the Forest of Reading® Silver Birch® Fiction and Silver Birch® Express awards on October 23, and the winner of the Red Maple™ Fiction Award on October 24!
