Children's Book Council of Australia: Wordplay@Artplay

Guild Storytellers are busy during the Melbourne Writers' Festival.

This year the CBCA Book Week celebrations are part of the international gathering of wordsmiths.

While big folk gather at

Federation Square to hear author talks and assemble for literary tours of Melbourne, smaller people congregate at ArtPlay for a program of brilliant workshops and story related activities.

Book Week is the longest running children's festival in Australia, celebrating its 65th birthday in 2010.

Each year, many schools and public libraries from all over Australia spend a week celebrating books and Australian authors and illustrators.


ArtPlay: behind Fed. Square to the east of the playground area at Birrarung Marr. ArtPlay is where learning, imagination and play come together to expand the minds and lives of our youngest generation.

The storytellers:
Saturday 28: Jackie Kerin

Sunday 5: Matteo

Times:11.15am and 2.00pm
