This morning a dedicated band of readers braved the rain and wind in Cairns to visit Smithfield library for a National Year of Reading author chat with me.
Thanks to Sivan and her team of librarians (they are so different to the librarians who had me terrified into submission when I was a child!) for hosting the event along with a delicious morning tea.
It was wonderful to see the library so busy and full of children. It still takes me a little while to feel relaxed when I’m talking in a library since the idea of being quiet around books is deeply ingrained. Thanks to everyone who attended and for being such great listeners! I’m looking forward to meeting more readers at Gordonvale Library on Saturday 2nd June 🙂
