What makes a good environmental children’s book? This extra special session at 3pm, Sunday the 15th of September, is brought to you by the Society of Children’s Book Writers and Illustrators (SCBWI) and the Wilderness Society. This year marks the 25th year of a very special award – Wilderness Society Environment Award for Children’s Literature, so there will also be a little nostalgic reflection on the 1994 presentation event, and a celebration of the continuance of this important national Award.
The event begins with Nicole Gill moderating a panel discussion with past Environment Award for Children’s Literature winners, Christina Booth, Coral Tulloch and Anne Morgan. Following the discussion, tarrum da da dum … Tasmanian children’s writer, Julie Hunt, will announce the winners of this year’s Wilderness Society Environment Award for Children’s Literature.
Once the Awards have been announced, there will be readings from the winners, followed by time for informal chat and book signings.
Tickets for the event can be obtained here ($25 for non-members or $20 for TasWriters members). The event will be in the Leadlight Room at Hadley’s Orient Hotel.
A SCBWI networking session (also in the Leadlight Room) will follow, from 4.50 – 5.45 pm. This event is ticketed separately and tickets are priced at $10 for Taswriters members and $12 for non-members. You can purchase tickets from SCBWI for the networking event here.
