Meet the authors and illustrators of new picture books 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. We include some regional creators from Cairns and Toowoomba as well as 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.
