Children’s Book Festival Schools Day
Friday, 23 Mar 2012, 12:00am - 12:00am
The big event on the calendar of all lovers of children’s literature is back! On Sunday 25 March, your favourite authors and illustrators will be taking over the lawns of the State Library for a day of books, books, books. Get yourself into the city for a huge celebration of children’s books that’ll be even bigger than last year. There’ll be performers and readings, music and magic. And most of all, there’ll be the people who created your favourite stories.
Festival day is Sunday 25 March, but on Thursday 22 and Friday 23 March, the State Library of Victoria will host a programme of activities and events for primary school classes.
With fun activities organised by the Children’s Book Council of Australia, Playgroup Victoria, Books Illustrated and others, you’ll barely have time to stop for an icecream … But you can.
