Hazel Edwards visits The Children's Bookshop in Beecroft

Yesterday Hazel Edwards and I visited The Children’s Bookshop in Beecroft.

35 teacher librarians joined us from the Sutherland Shire as we discussed the future of the book, the preservation of shared reading and ideas for Book Week.

Hazel Edwards discussed the challenges involved in writing a non-boring history for children.

Many of the teacher librarians were interested in Hazel’s offer to conduct a web chat with their students. Using Skype students can have a conversation with Hazel and ask her questions about her latest book, Sir Edward 'Weary' Dunlop .

We had a brilliant day thanks to our enthusiastic and hospitable host Paul MacDonald from The Children's Bookshop.

Photos are thanks to the lovely Susanne Gervay. It is always a pleasure to catch up with Susanne.

  1. Sounds like a lovely day, Hazel. With the promise of skyping connections, the community of literary minded students will grow. : )
