This time it’s the Big Lit Quiz, giving Brisbane schools the chance to show that they are the ultimate kids’ lit masters. Schools are invited to enter up to 3 teams of four year 5,6, or 7 students, to see if they can blitz the competition.
Friends, fellow students and families are welcome to egg the teams on from the audience. The lovely ladies from Dymocks North Lakes will be there with supplies of books by Sherryl, Sheryl, Prue and Michael for you to buy – it’s a great chance to get your own copies, and have them autographed.
“Don’t let a spoonbill in the kitchen” was launched by the Governor General on Saturday April 20 at the Brisbane Square Library. The music was exceptional, food divine and art activities with Lee Fullarton complemented the day perfectly. The exhibition of Narelle’s art on display along with one of her Travelling Suitcase added to the occasion.
Riverbend Books seemed to be busy selling copies of the books while
Narelle must have had writer’s cramp by the end of the day with the number of
people queued up for autographs.

Romancing the Stars was great fun again this year, in a new location and with a different mix of Stars. Nadia Sunde showcased her fabulous singing skills as the MC, and joined in with Peter Carnavas’s songs too. Nick Earls and Terry Whidborne launched their second Word Hunters title, and then it was on to the speed dating. Once again this was hugely entertaining and informative for the guests, and it looked like the stars were enjoying it too. Riverbend Books did a roaring trade, and people made the most of having so many authors on hand to sign books. Book Links president Jenny Stubbs was feeling under the weather, and managed to avoid the camera, which you will see when you go to the Events and Photos page, and check out the gallery of photos from Romancing the Stars 2013.
