CBCA NSW | Central Coast Sub-branch Past Events

2018

Our CBCA NSW Short List Event was in May at the Central Coast library in Erina. With our special guest, Paul Macdonald from The Children's Bookshop in Beecroft, the CBCA Central Coast Sub-branch members and their guests enjoyed sharing their connections to this year's CBCA NSW Book of the Year shortlist texts. 

With kind donations of some great children's literature, many guests also walked away with some fantastic lucky door book prizes.
