This was my first interstate trip as Australian Children’s Laureate. Over the next two years I will be visiting every state and territory in Australia.
Thank you to Clive from Penguin Random House for looking after me so well, taking me to visit bookshops around Adelaide and into the hills. The photo below was taken at Pegi Williams bookshop one of the many lovely bookstores where I signed copies of Zadie Ma and the Dog Who Chased the Moon.
It was also lovely catching up with dear friend and author Janeen Brian at the event organised by CBCA SA and the Hahndorf Academy. I also spoke to students in Stirling. Thank you to Stirling Library for organising this presentation.
Thank you also to Becky and Mike Lucas booking agent and bookshop owners of Shakespeares Bookshop who handled book sales.
