CBCA Conference

The 11th National Conference of the Children's Book Council of Australia was held in Canberra recently. It was great to have 21 SA attendees including wonderful author/illustrators Janeen Brian, Phil Cummings, Jane Jolly, Sally Heinrich and Rosanne Hawke. Many of our local members attended as did some Public Librarians and teacher librarians. It was a wonderful two days of sharing National Treasures and then a spectacular day where Jackie French opened up her home and garden in the Araleun Valley for a beautiful day of food, literature and horticulture.

The next Conference will be in 2016 in Sydney - these conferences are a wonderful opportunity to re - engage with literature and connect and network with many other like minded professionals. I would recommend it.

The year for the branch has started well with 40 people attending our 'And the winner is' evening and 30 at last nights SLASA / CBCA - SA joint event.

Our next session is our popular Arts Ideas night where Evelynne Richardson will use the book week title 'Connect to Reading' to create some wonderful art we can use with students. This will be held at Westbourne Park PS - 2 Marlborough Rd, Westbourne Park on Friday 13 June - 5.30pm for a 6pm - 8pm session. $25 members $40 non members RSVP This email address is being protected from spambots.
