Coming – Booked In! – May 4 -7

For the fourth consecutive year we are partnering with the New England Writers’ Centre to present Booked In! our children’s literature festival.

Writer Belinda Murrell and photographer/writer Jan Latta will visit schools in Armidale and Tamworth, as well as visiting more remote schools by videolink.  There will be workshops, panel discussions, and a book launch also involving local New England talent.  You can see details of the activities as well as book the Writers’ Centre-organised activities on their website:  http://www.newc.org.au/2016-program.html  both free and those with fees.


there will be a display celebrating the centenary of The School Magazine in the Armidale Dumaresq War Memorial Library, as well as the fabulous opening of an exhibition on the making of Shaun Tan’s Lost Thing from the Australian Centre for the Moving Image at the New England Regional Art Museum.


Come – join us and bring the whole family!
