This was the second BBDO and it was even bigger and better than last year. The sun was shining, the cupcakes were colourful and the sausages were sizzling on the BBQ. It was a day of books, writers, illustrators and families in the grounds of the NSW Writers Centre, Rozelle.
SCBWI had a stand with the brilliant Marjorie Crosby-Fairall, Aura Parker and Ben Johnston wowing passers by with their wonderful illustrations. Beside them were authors Margaret Roc, Therese Waters, Lesley Gibbs, Monica Lizama, Georgie Donaghey, Penny Morrison and Deborah Abela.
Congratulations to the CBCA, especially Dot Tonkin and Gail Erskine for juggling all that needs to be juggled to make such a successful day. This is a brilliant way to connect kids and families with writers and illustrators and have fun on a perfect Sydney spring day.
