2023 Reading is Magic Festival: Monday 2nd – Friday 6th October
Back for its fourth year, the Reading is Magic Festival brings a unique programme of free, digital events directly into classrooms around the world. This exciting, inclusive collaboration brings together Europe’s largest dedicated children’s literature festival – Bath Children’s Literature Festival – with literary festivals from around the world.
Here at BooksForTopics, we are delighted to be an official ambassador for the 2023 Reading is Magic Festival, which will present a world-class line-up of best-selling writers – including several who have appeared in our Year Group Recommended Reads lists, like Laura Ellen Anderson, BB Alston, Helen Rutter and Cressida Cowell – whose Children’s Laureate Charter was the inspiration for the Reading is Magic Festival.
Many of our favourite authors, poets and illustrators will be among those featured this year, and this booklist highlights some of their key titles.
