Book Week 2017

Welcome to Book Week 2017: Escape to Everywhere! Book Week is a special week in the year when schools and public libraries across Australia spend a week celebrating books, and Australian authors and illustrators, promoted by the Children’s Book Council of Australia.

We are celebrating Book Week this year with two author/illustrators visiting us. Mr Marc McBride will visit on Tuesday 22 August, and Ms Gabrielle Wang on Friday 25 August.

Marc McBride is an established illustrator of over 50 books including the popular fantasy series Deltora Quest, written by Emily Rodda and will be working with students to create a unique original piece, which we will display in the Tiverton Library.

Gabrielle Wang is a long-established Melbourne author/illustrator whose books include The Garden of Empress Cassia, The Pearl of Tiger Bay and A Ghost in My Suitcase. Gabrielle will be visiting our younger students and creating an artwork.

We encourage all of our students to visit their campus library during Book Week 2017!
