Chris Gallagher, Director, Tasmanian Writers’ Centre

Dear Writers and Readers,

Happy BOOK WEEK! Congratulations to the CBCA Book of the Year 2017 award winners, and Tasmanian author and illustrator Jennifer Cossins for A-Z of Endangered Animals, an Honour Book for the Eve Pownall Award for Information Books.

We will continue these celebrations at the festival with two special sessions for children and a Book Nook. The family sessions will be on Sunday morning with Bradley Trevor Greive, Nicole Gill and Christina Booth. Two wonderfully interactive sessions with drawing, music and lots of laughter guaranteed. Everyone is invited to dress up as their favourite creature or sheep!

Bookings: and

Here are three more sessions to whet your appetite – this time we have included our festival guests in action. This week’s festival competition prize has tickets to the State Cinema.

Happy Festival planning!
