Deb Abela and Jobi Murphy Visit - 11 March 2009

On Wednesday 11 March a lucky group of adults and children gathered in Wollongong library to hear the author and illustrator of the best-selling Max Remy Super Spy series. The event was sponsored by the Wollongong City Council Library and funded by the CBCA ALOUD Program

This feedback sums it up best:

Thank you to Di Bates and her local CBCA group for organising Deb's talk at Woll Library yesterday afternoon.

I know we heard her speak at ISLA conference about 2 years ago.

With children in the audience, she was spectacular!!!! She worked to the students but not did not leave out the adults. The students lapped up her happy, animated, dramatic performance. Very inspiring.

I know she visited Flinders yesterday, I have no doubt she had every student wanting to read her books!!

A great author to have
