This article from the Portland Observer is a lovely reminder of the fun book week visit I had to Bolwarra Primary School. A great effort in dressing up by all the students!
Many of you will know that I’m fortunate to be part of the KidLitVic Meet the Publishers team. The aim behind the conference is to have an event in Melbourne where YA and children’s writers and illustrators have the opportunity to meet publishers, editors and agents. I think we succeeded brilliantly with publishers, editors, agents and attendees flooding the State Library Victoria at our second conference in May 2017.
Our team consists of Coral Vass, Jaquelyn Muller, Nicky Johnston and me. I’ve never worked with a team of such all-rounders, tireless workers, super-smart, funny (in the humourous way) women. People have asked me who did what, so here you go!
Thank you to all the children (and parents) who attended my storytime at Dymocks Camberwell today. It was a lot of fun and I met some very clever children. Thank you to Kat and her team for organising this event and making me feel so welcome. If you are in the area you should check out their well stocked shop.
I had a lovely Saturday morning at Dymocks Victoria Gardens. Thank you to all the team there for making me feel so welcome and joining in the fun and games. Make sure you drop into their lovely shop if you are in the area.
Big thank you to Kate and the team at Collins Booksellers Moonee Ponds yesterday for welcoming me to their store. Great to meet you all and the lovely people of Moonee Ponds. Special hello to 3 year old Jordan who has already read a 1000 books!
