Children’s Literary Lunch – 3rd August 2010

This year the Children's Literary Lunch was held at the Fraternity Bowling and Recreation Club, Fairy Meadow. Guest Speaker was Bruce Whatley hosting a drawing workshop.

Approximately 120 children, teachers and librarians from around the Illawarra were lucky enough to be entertained by authors and illustrators Deb Abela, Aleesah Darlison, Sandy Fussell, Susanne Gervay, Richard Harland, Mo Johnson, Annabelle Josse, David Legge, Dawn Meredith, Kim Miller, Oliver Phommavanh, Lisa Shanahan, Mary Small and Sue Walker.

The children were then invited to come down onto the floor and learn to draw a wombat – just like Bruce’s – well some and to create funny faces with doodles. At the end of the day, the children, with their goody bags and lots of autographs and books tucked under their arm, went away eager to return next year.
