Melbourne Library Service: Reading Trail Picnic 2013

The Melbourne Library Service is a great supporter of traditional oral storytelling. Not only have they assisted Storytelling Australia (Victoria) with space to to meet, they have employed storytellers for librarian training and other storytelling events. Last week I was excited to be part of the inaugural Reading Trail in the Carlton Gardens. The trail featured, authors, illustrators and traditional storytellers including Clare Saxby, Mark Wilson, Adam Wallace, Julie Perrin, Niki na Meadhra and others. We were well spaced under the old trees and just as well as almost 200 children from nearby schools descended into the Park with much whooping and excitement. I was to busy to take many photos of the day. Only one pair of hands unfortunately. But here is a glimpse.
