The Festival Approaches

It is not long now until the festival launches on Sunday 13 October and we are busily working on final arrangements.

If you are a school that has children doing drawings for the Ipswich Drawn Together Project, we would love to have them submitted as soon as possible. They can be dropped off on the Mezzanine Floor of Ipswich Central Library marked attention Jenny Stubbs.

The family Program has lots of exciting sessions after school Monday – Thursday from 4:00 – 5:00 pm in Ipswich Central Library, as well as some events for parents and teachers at Ipswich Girls Grammar on the Monday evening 14 October and the Thursday morning 17 October at Springfield Library with Megan Daley talking about her book Raising Readers. Go to Programs to find out more. Please promote this to your school community.

Our Festival Bookseller, A Lot of Books have set up an online store. If you have children attending the festival you can ask them if they wish to pre-order their books to be either picked up at the Festival bookshops or possibly even delivered to your school.
