ALIA Library Lover’s Day, 2018

Lucy's Book Cover

This time last year, Cheryl Orsini and I were just about to publish Lucy’s Book, a picture book which I dubbed “my love letter to libraries and the written word”. It was wonderful to see how Lucy’s Book struck a chord with library lovers around the country, and this year, I am really chuffed (as a former librarian myself) to have been asked to write a “love letter to libraries” as part of The Australia Library and Information Association’s  annual Love Your Library Day.

Watch out for my “love letter” on posters, very soon! 

Library Lovers’ Day will be launched at the Parliamentary Friends of Australian Books and Writers event at Parliament House on 13 February 2018, and there are many resources available here from ALIA. Also, don’t forget that Lucy’s Book is an absolutely perfect picture book title to support any actives based on love for libraries!
