And what a star-studded event it was, with the zany Oliver Phommenvanh as host along with the wonderful library staff who contributed so much to the success of the event. Antonette had the audience playing dress ups and adding appropriate sounds to her Demi Chat mystery; Mark Thommason illustrated perspective with pieces of string (now why didn’t I think of that??) while giving kids tips about drawing, and Jan Latta showed a beautiful DVD of her adventures with animals in the wild. After a delicious morning tea I talked about some of my books, and about where ideas come from and how I’ve used them; and then Oliver had us all in hysterics with a series of stuffed toys! I suspect the library lion is still suffering from indigestion! I’m hoping to be able to attach a photo to this message, courtesy of Kylie Nolan – if I can work out how to do it!
