Starring Leigh Hobbs

The wonderful Leigh Hobbs, creator of book stars such as the irrepressible Old Tom is in town courtesy of the Western Sydney Literature Project. Leigh has been dropping in on schools running workshops and developing characters … just like his Old Tom and Horrible Harriet (and yes, there is a new HH book coming out soon). Hooray!

Last night a small group of us gathered at an innerwest eatery to dine with Leigh. We chit chatted and ate and then chit chatted a lot more. Just wonderful fun.

The creative rollcall included Libby Gleeson, Simon French, Donna Rawlins, Duncan Ball, Kerry Thompson, Sarah Davis, Louise Pfanner, David Legge, Susanne Gervay, Julie Vivas, and Judith Ridge who gathered us all together – and not to miss out was Gus Gordon who tweeted in!

It is always a great and very special time catching up with the other authors and illustrators.

Leigh, Libby and David

the smile!
