Only just over two months now until Booked In!, our annual children’s literature festival – May 1-3.
This year we are offering school visits by Jacquie Harvey to Armidale region schools on these three days, and local authors Trish Donald and Fiona McDonald will be visiting Glen Innes and Tamworth schools, respectively. Your school should have received an email or phone call from us, but if not, get in touch with Heather Fisher, our schools liaison officer, on firstname.lastname@example.org . We’d love your school to be part of Booked In!
