Thank you to The Painted Willow, our local illustrator for joining us at our Illustrators at Large event. This was a fantastic surprise for all who attended who thoroughly enjoyed seeing your fantastic illustrations and are now equally keen to find your drawings published and on their library shelves in the very near future. Thank you also goes out to the Central Coast Library Service for assisting with a great new space to host our annual event, and to Book Face Erina for giving students the opportunity to buy a copy of our author/illustrator's books to be personally signed on the day.

Committee Meetings

CBCA NSW Central Coast Subbranch hold regular meetings at Breakers Country Club Wamberal. These meetings are held on Tuesdays of Week 2 and 7 each school term commencing at 5pm.

All members and non-members are encouraged to come to these meetings. We believe that with more voices and minds committed to the cause, a greater impact on improving the connection to children's literature will be felt on the coast.
