It is held each year on the weekend closest to International Children’s Book Day, 2 April – Hans Christian Andersen’s birthday.

The afternoon includes the Storylines Margaret Mahy Medal and Lecture presentations, announcement of awards for original manuscripts, launches of the books published as the product of Storylines’ award-winning manuscripts, and the announcement of new Storylines initiatives.
