Keeping Books Alive – Lilydale Heights College – July 26
The KEEPING BOOKS ALIVE conference was held yesterday at Lilydale Heights College. Teachers and librarians came to hear authors, illustrators and many from the children’s publishing industry talk about their craft. Thank you Paul Collins and Meredith Costain from Ford Street Publishing and Rob Leonard from Children’s Charity Network for organising, Lilydale Heights College for hosting and to my fellow presenters for sharing the stage – Wendy Orr, Catherine Bateson, Archie Fusillo, Claire Saxby, Del Robinson, Louise Park, Bernard Caleo! It’s always a privilege to hear about how other creators work and to watch them present – it’s a continual learning experience for us all.
I’d like to thank Wendy Orr for taking the place of Sue Lawson on yesterday’s panel with Claire Saxby and myself. Sue had to pull out, due to ill health but she is looking forward to being part of it again next year.
