Happy Children’s Book Week

Every year, all over Australia, we celebrate Children’s Book Week to highlight the many fantastic books for youth that are produced in this country. Children’s Book of the Year is also announced during this week and our libraries have the shortlisted and winning books on display for you to request.

The Shire of Augusta Margaret River Libraries also celebrate Children’s Book Week by inviting an award winning author or illustrator to visit our libraries and speak to local school students. This year, thanks to our sponsors The State Government of WA, Dept of Culture and the Arts, LotteryWest, Healthway and the  Go for2&5,  and the Children’s Book Council of Australia WA Branch, author Mark Greenwood visited both Margaret River and Augusta libraries and spoke to over 200 students from local primary schools.

Mark Greenwood discussed the origins and inspirations for his books, from simple rhyming text through to the extensive research involved in creating historical fiction, from the development of a storyline, through the stages involved in preparing for publication.

More information on Mark Greenwood can be found at www.markgreenwood.com.au and his books can be reserved online at http://amrlibraries.worldcat.org/ using your library card.

We would like to thank our sponsors for making our event with author Mark Greenwood happen:
