What a super excellent day it was yesterday … not because of the red dust that was covering all of Sydney (see the photos from the newspaper here) but because of the scrumptious time I had at the annual BOOKFEAST gathering. Michale Fraser does a brilliant job organsing this annual gathering (now in its 15th year) and now that he is the librarian at Haberfield Public School … well things just could not be better. And it is a well known fact that only the best kids go to that school – I know! That is the delightfully bubbly school captain Jessica smiling with me! — photo to come — This was taken on my camera. Hopefully I will get some more.
We had a delicious lunch in a the Department of Education building in the city, Duncan Ball and Kerry Millard entertained us wonderfully and the students who I dined with from Haberfield School were super special … but then I might just be a little biased. Thanks for letting me share lunchtime with you and rattle on about MY time at the great school.
Now I must go and see if I can find the old school tie and also some photos.
Oh and guess which pen I was using to sign all those autographs yesterday? Yes you got it … my Haberfield school pen they gave me when I spoke there two years ago! And they still remember my story about the spooky house!!!!
Attending functions like this is just one of the joys of being a kids author … see now you know another reason why I have the best job in the world.
More on the Carolinas later but Pam Vaughan (official photographer for the New England conference last weekend) has just sent me oodles and poodles of photos … so if you don’t want to see piccies of me in action – then look away now! There are photos of me with friends, of me panelling, photos […]
