If you looked for a May meeting, we didn’t have one, as we assumed everyone would be involved with our very successful Booked In! Festival which ran May 4 – 7. Authors Belinda Murrell and Jan Latta visited schools, presented workshops, participated in video conference links with small schools, worked with local presenters on panel discussions, and probably went home tired. We hope they also went home happy with our enthusiastic response. In addition to all their hard work, and those of the people who drove, liaised and organised, everyone was able to view a display to celebrate The School Magazine‘s Centenary in the Armidale Dumaresq Library, and attend the opening at NERAM of the ACMI’s exhibition on the making of Shaun Tan’s The Lost Thing into a film.
