Romancing the Stars in Brisbane

On Thursday evening 12 March discover what books our local authors and illustrators have been creating for children and young adults. Each creator will give a short introduction to their latest publication in a small intimate circle, before rotating on to the next group. You have a chance to get inside information about the creation of the books and make contact with potential presenters for your school or library.

Speed date 20 local stars and meet others informally. Great food and drinks. View and buy books and illustrations. Enter raffle and quiz competition.
