Second annual Yea MARC Literary Festival

Yesterday, I was at Flowerdale for the second Annual Yea MARC Literary Festival with four other author/illustrators (from L: Diana Lawrenson, Libby Ahern, Mark Wilson, moi, Corinne King and Marjory Gardner). Four other schools were bussed in for the day. It's organised by the indefatigable Libby Ahern and enjoyed by us all.

For the rest of the year, Libby drives the library van around to small schools in the region who don't have libraries of their own. Mark painted the van and it features all manner of Australian native animals.

Can't wait for next year.

What an amazing group- love the painted van too- how exciting seeing that come up the road- with fabulous books in it- lucky kids.
