On Wed 15th October our sub branch had a meeting in the fabulous St Kevin’s Catholic School library. Our treasurer Kirsty O’Rourke is the librarian there. Two of our members- Lesley Gibbes and Penny Morrison enthralled us with their stories as our Member Spotlights. They are both having terrific success with their writing and we share the excitement of their successes.

Our guest speaker was gifted author Laurine Croasdale. Laurine is a fabulous ambassador for children’s writing, authors and illustrators. She has written scripts for Hi 5, the ABC and lots of books. She’s also been involved events such as Literature Live and One Word one day. Currently she is working at the Australian Society of Authors and is on the committee for the Children’s Laureate.

It was another terrific meeting. Thank you Kirsty for hosting us again at your school.
