Keynote speaker: James Roy
Additional Speakers: Jackie French, Bruce Whatley
This free event was held at Dymocks Sydney where the NOTABLES 2018 were announced in the lead up to the Short List announcement at the AAA Conference to be held 27th March at Rydges World Square.
Guest speakers on the night were
Danny Katz and Mitch Vane: creators of the best-selling series "Little Lunch", followed by
Margaret Hamilton, AM: What's "notable" in a picture book?
A stellar night with a list of books that will take you to the stars and back.
So many schools represented by their Teachers & Teacher Librarians who loved the opportunity to network with lots of book creators and other lovers of literature.
Margaret Hamilton achieved the impossible in telling us, in 10 minutes, what makes a Notable Picture book. In case you have forgotten any of her important points you can read it again in our members only section.
Danny Katz & Mitch Vane entertained as the dynamic duo, talking, drawing and giving an insight into their new title: “The Poppa Platoon in World War Chew”. Such hilarity in the show bag pavilion will surely entice readers. The audience certainly was.
What a wonderful celebration to mark the release of the CBCA Notables List for 2018.
Thanks also to Scholastic and Dymocks for their support of our important not-for-profit volunteer organisation - without that support we couldn’t have these wonderful opportunities to promote the amazing work of our Australian children’s authors and illustrators.
