The Asian Festival of Children's Content (AFCC) will roll out its 9th edition this September 6-8! Held at the National Library, AFCC will celebrate the theme "Imagine-Asia" and Singapore as the Country of Focus. Over 60 local and international featured speakers will gather here, including writers, illustrators, translators, publishers, storytellers, educators and content creators. They will speak on topics ranging from the creation of Asian books for children, to cross-platform development and promoting more mother tongue content in schools. 

AFCC 2018 will also cast a spotlight on one of our pioneers, the award-winning illustrator Kwan Shan Mei. The exhibition, "Kwan Shan Mei: Drawing From The Heart 关山美:以心动笔", will showcase some of the best-known children's illustrations by the late Madam Kwan, who won the Book Council's inaugural Book Award in 1976. 

From panel discussions to masterclasses, workshops, exhibitions, performances, readings, book fair and awards, AFCC 2018 will offer an exciting line-up of programmes!
