Meet the New Kids on the Block at this Romancing the Stars Event Online. This is a chance to discover what new books our regional authors and illustrators have been creating for children. These are mostly first time authors and illustrators from regional Queensland plus a few local Brisbane creators. This event will focus on Picture Books. Each creator will give a short introduction to their latest publication. 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.
