Book Week 2016

Book week is over for another year.

I visited a whole bunch of schools this year, including:

St Michael’s Collage for 2 days.
Golden Grove High School.
Adelaide Hills Library (Stirling).
Loreto College.
Trinity Collage for 2 days.

This year at some of the schools I trialed a drawing workshop where I would go through character creation and world building with the kids and then they would draw there own. It worked out great and I’m going to add it as an option for other schools from now on.

Here are what the kids came up with in the character creation part of my normal talks.
