WA event: Libraries hosting Book of the Year talks

Here’s something for grownups in Perth who love children’s books. (If you live in another state, check with your branch of the Children’s Book Council for similar events around Australia).

Book of the Year Award—Shortlist Talks

Every year around May, the WA Branch of the Children’s Book Council of Australia presents a talk about the books that have been shortlisted for the Book of the Year Awards. This year a panel of experts will present the Shortlist Talks and our editor—Rebecca—will be on the panel on 3rd May at the Joondalup Library. Come and say hi!
