From April through to July, the City of Boroondara Library Service will be hosting a series of four book sharing/discussion sessions for girls aged 10+ and their mums and another series for boys aged 10+ and their dads.
These sessions will give girls and their mums a chance to talk about books together and in the company of well known guest authors. A different theme is planned for each month and there will be competitions and great book prizes to be won.
The girls’ theme for June is ‘Pictures Tell Stories Too’ with illustrator Marc McBride as our special guest for the night. Marc is well known as the illustrator of the popular Deltora Quest series of books, and has a great love of fantasy as his illustrations prove.
The girls’ series will be held at Kew Library on Tuesdays once a month and the boys’ series at Hawthorn Library on Wednesdays once a month.
Both series will culminate in a very special fifth and final session on Tuesday 19 August entitled ‘About us all’ where all participants will come together with John Marsden and Anna Ciddor to discuss crossing boundaries in reading. This will be a real highlight and shouldn’t be missed!
The sessions are free, however places are limited and bookings are essential. So get in fast!
Phone: 9278 4677 - please book in person or over the phone
Further dates to look out for: 22 July & 19 August (bookboy)
