Shearer's Bookshop on Norton Street had had a craft creating extravaganza based on Stuck. Stuck is Oliver Jeffers latest children's book. Then last week, I saw this poster whilst at Leichhardt Library.
Oliver Jeffers is a kids book author from Northern Ireland. A friend, who now lives in the UK with her family of four children, gave O his first Jeffers, The Way Back Home. So began our family's enjoyment of many of his other titles. O (our two years + a few months) L.O.V.E.S. The Way Back Home, Lost and Found and Stuck.
Shearer's Bookshop has organised an Oliver Jeffers event. Jeffers is out for the Sydney Writer's Festival. Whilst this author talk is not something my two year could attend, I would have loved to go! Writing children's books has always been a pipe dream of mine...
Anyway... the nub of this post is - I have subscribed to Shearer's Bookstore newsletter. I could not find Berkelouw's newsletter sign-up (if they have one - I am going to call them and find out).
Berkelouw Books is another good book store that has Newtown and Leichhardt locations. The Newtown store has story time every Thursday at 10.30am in the cafe. I forgot to ask what age their story time is aimed at. I called the Leichhardt store, but the line was busy, so I am not sure if they also do a weekly story time. I'll try to find out.
