Authors celebrate book week
PERTH-based authors helped celebrate Children’s Book Week in the Town of Victoria Park at the Sussex Street library. Norman Jorgensen, of Kalamunda, Deb Fitzpatrick, of Fremantle, and Josephine Bacon, of Hammond Park, each presented three sessions to nearly 300 students from local schools. Jorgensen and Fitzpatrick talked about their books and the writing process, inspiring students to read and use their imagination to write themselves, while Bacon presented a session based on the shortlisted Children’s Book Week book TheTreasureBox by Margaret Wild and Freya Blackwood.
