Childrens Book Council of Australia luncheon Wollongong
Me with the gorgeous students from Wollongong Public School & their fab Teacher Librarian, Linda Leslie.
Illustrator Bruce Whatley in action.
Had a fantastic time today at the Children's Book Council of Australia literary luncheon. Authors and illustrators were hosted a nice lunch while students chatted, asked questions, listened carefully at times, squealed with excitement at other times, giggled and raced around collecting autographs. After signing a 100 or so my hand was a bit shaky! Authors included myself, Richard Harland, Sandy Fussell, Aleesah Darlison, Mo Johnson, Di Bates, Suzanne Gervay, Sue Walker, Mary Small, Bill Condon, Oliver Phommovanh, Kim Miller, Deb Abela and Lisa Shanahan. Illustrators were Bruce Whatley, David Legge and Annabelle Josse. We all got two minutes, (yes, two!) to pitch our latest book or series, being judiciously gonged by the the fabulously punctual Di Bates.
A great time was had by all and I look forward to doing it again!
