CBCA Booklaunches

Last weekend I went to the Children's Book Council of Australia National Conference in Canberra. It was sensational. Many, many amazing moments and talks, lots of lovely, interesting people.

There were also lots of book launches! Every meal break there were one or two books being launched. Everything from picture books to YA, and everyone from first time authors to Morris Gleitzman.

I do love a book launch so of course I was in a bit of seventh heaven. Naturally I got merchandised at a few of them….
