rhe CBCA (SA) Branch and our Gold Sponsor, Dymocks Rundle Mall, were pleased to join together to host a free community event celebrating South Australian authors and illustrators of YA and children's literature.
Host Allayne Webster was joined by Adam Cece, Beck Nicholas, Sean Williams, Margot McGovern, S.J. Morgan, Poppy Nwosu, Jared Morgan and Dan McGuinness for a rollicking night of fun and exploration of the stories behind the books.
Stories were told of how our guests started their craft, their earliest children's literature favourites, and their current projects - all illustrated on the spot by Dan, interspersed with games and musical interludes from our talented guests!
Some of these authors are available for school and library visits through another of our Gold sponsors Becky's Literary Bookings.
On a serious note Margot highlighted the importance of recognizing the importance of Australian YA Literature and the the work and resources of the LoveOzYA project.
Thank you authors and illustrators. Thank you Dymocks Rundle Mall for a great night.
