On 30th November it was our pleasure to host our first book launch at the Brisbane HQ. This event celebrated the volunteer authors from our local area who have donated stories to the library in 2018. We officially launched 6 titles, 5 of which were created in our mid-year workshop hosted by Michelle Worthington. We were thrilled that Michelle was able to join us for the launch, alongside new and emerging writers, and friends of Library For All.
The launch was a chance for writers to network and discuss new projects, as well as celebrating the stories that have appeared in the LFA library. For those whose work is not yet in print, we provided some sneak peeks of work-in-progress illustrations. There were lots of laughs, and even a few (happy) tears as authors received print copies of their books. We are thrilled that one of the by-products of our mission to create more happy readers is the creation of more happy writers!
Events such as this are just one small way that we can thank the generous creatives who help make our library dream a reality.
