A big thank you to everyone who joined us over the last 2 weekends for our launch of the Diary of a Reading Kid Journal. With the help of our wonderful authors Chris Morphew, Frances Watts and Claire Craig we all made a great start on our journals, creating pages for author autographs, writing about ourselves and the books we are loving and circling dates for some pretty exciting author events coming up on the calendar.
If you missed out, don't despair! We have some more journal days coming up in the Easter school holidays, which are only around the corner. These will be specific to your age groups so we can really get stuck into creating a masterpiece of a journal all about you and the books you read. We will keep you posted with dates as soon as they are locked in.
Don't forget Jennifer Walsh, author of local adventure story Tunnels of Tarcoola will be at our bookclub this Thursday at 4:30 to tell us a few secrets about the tunnels in Balmain and the inspiration behind her thrilling tale. It is free, so come along - but for those who can't make it, join us for an interview with Jennifer on the blog.
We also have the launch of Deborah Abela's new book, Ghost Club on Tuesday, 6th March at 4pm... there will be a spectacular performance by Stanmore Public School and some delicious cupcakes to celebrate the new book.
And finally we have Gabrielle Lord of Conspiracy 365 fame coming in for an interview for the blog in March so if you have any questions about Cal and his ability to hide in some pretty amazing places... send me an email and we will ask her for you!
We have some cool competitons coming up in the next few weeks so get your pencils sharpened and start sending in some of your reviews.
