Book Slam

Hear about the best new Australian children’s literature when we unveil the Notables List 2017 at the CBCA (Qld branch) Book Slam. What is Book Slam, I hear you say? It’s short sharp book talks about our favourite books of the last year. Sometimes those talks rhyme, sometimes they may even be sung. Some are funny, some are sad. All are under 2 minutes. 

Hear our guest Book Slammers share their favourites, then have a go yourself. Copies of the full Notables List will be on display for your perusing pleasure - and we’ll even give you free wine and cheese! Entry by donation but bookings required for catering.

Guest Book Slammers include: Megan Daley, authors Christine Bongers and Michael Gerard Bauer. March 

Check out the YouTube video of the Book Slam from 2016.

Tuesday 21st 6:00pm for 6:30 start.
