Unfortunately, as with so many things at the moment, we have had to postpone Booked In! At the time of this post, we have moved Ursula and Margrete’s visits to October. This will include all school, library and bookshop visits, as well as the workshop organised by the New England Writer’s Centre.
Ursula Dubosarsky, one of our Booked In! guests has been announced as Children’s Laureate for 2020-2021, so we are very pleased to have booked her visit before her diary completely filled. Our other visitor is Margrete Lamonde of Dirt Lane Press.
The workshop to be held at the New England Regional Art Museum organised by NEWC, a visit by Ursula to the Armidale Regional Public Library, and an event at Reader’s Companion Bookshop with both Margrete and Ursula have all been postponed until October. Check the library and bookshop websites for more information.
In the meantime, check out the Children’s Laureate website for activity ideas from Ursula, and a terrific article by Margrete about Endpapers in children’s books, mentioned in our April meeting minutes.
The Sub branch is continuing to meet – virtually. We had our first meeting via Zoom on April 4, and it worked very well.
Our next meeting will be May 2. Join us! If you aren’t on our regular email list, contact the Honorary Secretary to be included.
