Southern Gazette (South Perth) - - Near You -

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.
