Book Week in Australia, the Melbourne Writers’ Festival and a huge Alice-Miranda launch!
It’s been a great week. My first Book Week as a full time writer and I’ve had a ball visiting five different schools in Sydney. It’s been wonderful to see the enthusiasm for reading from the teachers and students and I’ve had a ball. I am looking forward to the Melbourne Writers’ Festival next – another first for me.
My Melbourne Writers’ Festival public event on Sunday is sold out but I believe there are still tickets available for my Tuesday event. You can book tickets at Melbourne Writers’ Festival Meet Jacqueline Harvey
It’s been amazing to see Alice-Miranda and Clementine Rose selected as dress ups for the week and Alice-Miranda has been blogging about all her new friends over at http://alice-miranda.blogspot.com
I’ve got some of the photos below. I bow down to the parents and grandparents who have made so many fabulous outfits this week – not only for Alice-Miranda and Clemmie but the myriad characters who weave their magic in children’s lives. Thank you to everyone for making stories important.
I’m thrilled that the Alice-Miranda Diary for 2014 is almost out and Alice-Miranda Shines Bright is in the shops in less than a week too. We’re having a huge launch party for the books and Clementine Rose and the Farm Fiasco at The Children’s Bookshop in Beecroft on Saturday 31 August at 1pm. Please come along – there will be animals (and hopefully a tea cup pig!). I’d love to see you there.
