The Event: Celebrating Books with Paul McDonald at The Children’s Bookshop, Beecroft
A speed launch of their latest work of art, aka children’s book. The variety and scope of topics was incredible, illustrating to the crowd of 120 just how diverse and awesome picture books and junior novels really are.
The hilarious, moving and insightful presentations were delivered with humility and humor and from a personal point of view, were a tremendous way of sharing the love of story with so many in such a brief but brilliant time. I found this experience immensely fulfilling, and enjoyed every second of it. What a privilege to be in the same room with so much talent.
Here are some of the highlights from the raucous trip in; the presenters; and the crowd!
We could have stayed in that bookshop all afternoon but of course, there was a Conference to attend.
Come back soon for the next exciting installment of Sydney 2019!
Rove ya later!
