The school program for primary students has finished today. It was wonderful to see children so excited about books and their literary heroes who wrote and illustrated them.
At the end of each session I attended, children came out smiling and inspired. I am now looking forward to the three days of the adult portion of the festival and of course especially to the pre-launch on Sunday of Meet Sidney Nolan (Penguin Random House Australia).

Here is a slide show of some of my favourite photos of Australian authors and illustrators I have taken so far.
