I'm very excited to be part of the team heading off to the Inaugural Clunes Booktown for Kids. The theme: A time before Vegemite.
This little gold mining town has a new life as a place famous for its bookshops and festivals. In April 2012 Clunes gained international Organisation of Booktowns membership becoming the 15th international booktown and the only booktown in the southern hemisphere.
Booktown for Kids covers two days - a schools day and a family day. There are workshops, readings, a Children's Village of Lost Trades and more ...
I'll be there with my books Phar lap the wonder horse and Lyrebird! A true story and on both days I'll be running storytelling workshops and shows: telling stories the old-fashioned way.
