CBCA ISC Children's Literary Lunch 2017

Michelle Morgan - Monday, August 14, 2017

It was another fun Children's Literary Lunch at the Fraternity Club in Wollongong last Wednesday. This annual  event is organised by the Children's Book Council of Australia Illawarra-South Coast Sub-branch. 

I joined 15 other authors and illustrators, and an audience of nearly 200 students and teacher-librarians for a fantastic day filled with stories, books and drawing. I had the privilege of being the guest author at a table of students and their teacher-librarian from Port Kembla Public School.

The morning program consisted of three minute pitches from the authors and illustrators. I donned a woollen scarf and 1930s flying goggles to deliver my pitch about my new novel, Flying through Clouds. After lunch, we were entertained by Adam Murphy with his sketching techniques and stories from his time working on films such as The Lion King, Aladdin and The Little Mermaid.

Thanks CBCA ISC for a great day!
