To the Members and Friends of IBBY,
The IBBY community is deeply shocked by the recent terrorist attacks in Paris and Beirut. We also remember the attack at the Garissa University in Kenya earlier this year, as well as all the other bombings and indiscriminate attacks taking place around the world. Our thoughts are with the victims and their families, and especially at this time with the members of IBBY France and IBBY Lebanon, and our colleagues in Africa.
The IBBY mission to promote international understanding is more relevant than ever.
With great sadness,
Wally De Doncker Liz Page
IBBY President Executive Director
