Ford Street Literary Festival – Boroondara Park Primary School

Last Thursday I joined many other children’s authors and illustrators at the Ford Street Literary Festival at Boroondara Park Primary School.

We spent the day presenting to, sharing secrets and reading to more than 650 eager students with book sales at the end of the day.

We were greeted warmly on arrival at the school and given our own Personal Assistants to help with directions and finding out where we needed to be. My special thank you goes to Christina who took great pride and care in looking after me and making sure I was in the right place at the right time. I have a lovely photo of her but I’m still waiting for permission from her to be able to post it on line. For all of us, the sharing of photos on social media and on our websites, of students, is always a big issue, but I solved the problem last week – improvisation is alive and well!

  1. Hazel Edwards Such an original way to solve the legal problem of not showing children's faces without permission. I;ve had them used paperplate masks before, but this is so much more bookish. Well done.

  2. Chris Bell Sounds like a fabulous day and festival and a truly innovative way of negotiating privacy issues. Great idea, C.
