Who we are

Everybody has a right to discover literature and to create stories, irrespective of their socio-economic or cultural background, gender, sexual preference or mental and physical abilities. Yet not all of us have an equal opportunity to do so.

That is something the Europe-wide project Every Story Matters – making books more inclusive aims to change. We want to encourage the creation of more inclusive books for children and young adults, and to give book professionals (including publishers, librarians and editors) the tools and the strategies needed to become more inclusive and make diversity mainstream. 


Together we can make a difference.

Events and activities

Digital B2B 


Unfortunately, due to the spread of the Coronavirus epidemic both in Italy and internationally, both the Bologna Children’s Book Fair 2020 and the Frankfurt Book Fair 202 were cancelled. At the moment, we are looking into options for an alternative.


In the meantime, we offer a digital B2B alternative, collecting video and text pitches from inclusive titles across the globe.
