President’s Report September 2021
I hope you all celebrated the Awards announcement in some way. The online announcement was put together by the South Australian Branch and it was entertaining and engaging. I particularly liked the way that children were involved and that features of the landscape were woven into the presentation. With all the paper aeroplanes whizzing around, I was prompted to look more carefully at the Book Week poster and all the flying images on it.
Further on in this enews is information about the production of an Australia Post coin based on Lazy Lions Lounging in the Local Library image from “Animalia” by Graeme Base. This is a partnership initiative between CBCA National and Australia Post, so please show your support by purchasing from our National estore. There are also packs of postcards of the Lazy Lions lounging to purchase.
The Children’s Book Week theme for 2022 is also revealed in this enews. It will form the theme for the 2022 National Conference as well.
Did you purchase a copy of “Old Worlds, New Worlds, Other Worlds stories, poetry and plays for children”? I have a copy and it is a wonderful resource to delve in to. Contact Justine to purchase a copy for $22.00 or use the estore. It is an initiative of the NSW Eastern Suburbs Sub – Branch.
Hopefully we will have some restrictions lifted soon and can go browsing to buy books or borrow from a Library in real time. Always more fun than ordering online and waiting for delivery.
Happy reading everyone,
CBCA ACT Branch President
