Sea of Books in Rimini, the Festival of Children Reading

2023-06-16 to 2023-06-18

The new edition of Sea of Books takes place in Rimini from 16 to 18 June 2023; three days of events and meetings dedicated to children reading and their favourite authors.

Children's Festival reading is the brainchild of the booksellers of the children's bookshop Via dei Ciliegi 17 in Rimini.

Sea of Books organises and promotes Chop, chop!, the first booktrailer competition on a national scale reserved for boys.

The booktrailer. It is a short video presentation that promotes a book, like a film trailer promotes a film. It is designed to entice the audience to read a particular novel and generally gives the viewer a taste of the story, without giving too many details and especially without revealing the ending!

The competition. The idea of a children's competition combining reading and media came from the experience of the Festival's book volunteers. Life as it comes of Anne-Laure Bondouxpublished in 2010 by San Paolo. The book was given for reading still in draft form, so that the children could read it and work on it before publication. Other publishing houses have decided over the years to collaborate with Mare di Libri, providing drafts of novels not yet published and thus contributing to the birth of Chop, chop!.

Three minutes to tell a story. Participants in the competition will choose one of the unpublished novels and will have to make a video of a maximum duration of three minutes. I films must be ready by 18 Mayto be submitted to a jury that will select the winner. The winning booktrailer will be screened at the Sea of Books Festival 2022, will receive a rich prize in books and will be uploaded on Mare di Libri's YouTube channel. Participation is completely free of charge.

The festival takes in the historic city centre, and also the beach, three days of readings and meetings with authors, to reflect, discover, learn.

All three days are packed with meetings and events from early in the morning: classical literature, poetry, fantasy, mythology and more will be discussed.

For all events, the internet bookingdirectly from the programme page.
