With me being away a few weekends in a row at book events, Amelia was pretty interested in going to something bookish too. Lucky for us we didn’t have to wait long for a suitable event to come up! The day after the Sydney Writer’s Festival local Canberra author Maura Pierlot launched her new picture book – The Trouble in Tune Town – at the National Library of Australia.
The launch was SO MUCH FUN! To start with, the NLA is a gorgeous venue (just look at those windows!), so it is probably hard to go wrong! This event went above and beyond, with a performance by a children’s orchestra as well as a bunch of craft activities – tambourine making, colouring, and making a door hanger – all of which Amelia loved.
Overall, it was a fantastic way to spend a Sunday afternoon, and Amelia had a perfect introduction to the world of bookish events!
