I’ve been invited to speak at the October meeting of the Illawarra School Libraries Association, which is being held Shellharbour Public School, Mary St, Shellharbour on Thursday 30th. I understand I’ll be doing two presentations, for primary and secondary teacher-librarians.
I’m really looking forward to it – a scenic train journey, the stimulating company of teacher-librarian colleagues and two other exciting guests:
Paul Macdonald of the Children’s Bookshop, Beecroft, who specialises in reading for gifted students, boys’ literacy and books for adolescents, and
Julie Vivas, one of Australia’s foremost illustrators of children’s picture books, such as Possum magic, Wilfrid Gordon McDonald Partridge (both of which have featured in recent NSW DET book raps), The Nativity, Let the celebrations begin, Let’s eat and Hello baby.
