About the event

Teachers and anyone else interested in children's books invite you to join us at The Yass Book Store for wine and cheese or tea and cakes, whichever takes your fancy (or both). We’ll talk very briefly about why we love picture books and why we think they are important. Feel free to doze in one of Jo’s comfy velvet chairs or to join in the chat. Then when we finish talking, chill with your colleagues to prepare for the last week and the holidays.

Barbie and Ian each have decades of teaching experience in primary schools, Ian not only as as a teacher, but also as a school leader and counsellor. Each went on to other pursuits after retiring from teaching – Ian did a degree at ANU School of Art and volunteers as a guide at NGA as well as singing in community choirs. Barbie went to work in arts marketing, design, gallery management and arts journalism, as well as devoting more time to her photographic arts practice.
