Adelaide Festival of Children's Books

2017 MGCLT fellows Sally Heinrich and Matt Shanks are featuring at the inaugural Adelaide Festival of Children's Books on Sunday 22nd October at Carrick Hill.

Sally will be leading an art activity in which you and/or your younger family members can make a relief printing block to create postcards, or do a pencil drawing from one of the lino blocks Sally used for illustrating One Step at a Time. Matt will be sharing the knowledge of koalas that he gained when illustrating Koala Bare by Jackie French, and helping everyone create their own koala drawings. 

Along with Sally and Matt, the Festival is packed with talent from near and far, including SA's Janeen Brian, Katrina Germein, Jane Jolly and Danny Snell. The bestselling Garth Nix and Sean William will be launching their new book Have Sword, Will Travel. 

We hope to see you there, to celebrate and enjoy the remarkable talents of children's authors from across Australia.
