May 14 – 16, Armidale and Uralla school children were fortunate to have visits from popular children’s author, Tristan Bancks, and talented illustrator, Kate Durack.
Over two days Tristan and Kate visited seven schools during nine separate visits. Also, a writing workshop and a book launch were part of the annual festival. Below are a few photos taken at the school visits. Support was gratefully received from the Armidale Regional Council and the Australian Decorative and Fine Arts Society/Rotary Club – Armidale Central in the form of small grants.
Our next regular meeting will take place August 12 in the meeting room of the new premises of the Armidale Memorial Library. Note that this is the second Saturday of August, to accommodate the Armidale International Film Festival.
