Some other snaps from the Conference:
Bob Graham took us through his life and his life’s works. He was then treated to orchestrated interpretations of four of his picture books (composed and conducted by George Ellis) including How To Heal A Broken Wing.
Sandy Fussell, author of the recent Jaguar Warrior talked all things Internet…
… with Boomerang Books’ own Dee White, author of Letters to Leonardo and helmer of Kids’ Book Capers.
Queen Victoria made a rare posthumous appearance at the book launch of Queen Victoria’s Underpants, Jackie French and Bruce Whatley’s latest.
Okay… so I almost went a full festival without making myself the centre of attention – Margaret Hamilton looks on as I, the youngest member of the CBCA NSW Committee, and Maurice Saxby, the oldest living former CBCA NSW Committee member, cut the cake for the CBCA NSW’s 65th.
The cake in question before Maurice and I hacked it to bits. For the record, it was delicious.
