CBCA NSW AGM 2012: a resounding success!


Congratulations to the committee of the Children’s Book Council’s NSW Branch who successfully gave yesterday’s Annual General Meeting a slick, new look, with rousing “speed dating” presentations by five authors and illustrators – Susanne Gervay, Nathan Luff, Sue Whiting, Serena Geddes and Sarah Davis – before the meeting proper and the scrumptious morning tea. PMBW’s own Jackie Hawkes and Honor White are on the committee this year (and next)!
