‘Romancing the Stars’ a great success!

Congratulations, to everyone involved in the recent Book Links (Qld) event, ROMANCING THE STARS.

It was a fabulous success, bringing together 31 of Queensland’s children’s authors and illustrators with their supporters … hard-working teacher-librarians, teachers and many from the community who love children’s books.

Author, Josie Montano’s brilliant MC skills (and her hilarious one-liners) carried the night, and our guest speaker, well-known and much-loved author, Nick Earls launched THE NATIONAL YEAR OF READING with aplomb.

Highlight of the night was SPEED-DATING THE AUTHORS AND ILLUSTRATORS, giving everyone a chance to discover more about their favourite creators and their books, and learning more about those not so well known.

With authors and illustrators, Gregory Rogers, Josie Montano, Narelle Oliver
The Sunde Sisters

Entertainment came from the talented and unique, SUNDE SISTERS (all the way from Croatia) – Angela and Nadia. Their hilarious and clever play on the song, Never on Sunday and their interaction with the audience proved they should add stand-up comedy to their usual repertoire of writing for children, singing and song-writing.

With authors, Sheryl Gwyther, Prue Mason and Kierin Meehan .

The event’s success ensures it will be an annual celebration of Queensland’s children’s writers and illustrators.
