Award winning picture book creators Illustrator and author Anna Walker and author Jane Godwin
will be our guests at the Melbourne Book Market 'L shed' Queen Victoria Market Sunday July 18, 11am to 1pm
We'll have a display of the fabulous picture books Anna and Jane have
created together and a range of Anna's books and limited edition prints for sale.
So, join us, meet Anna and Jane and have some books personally signed!
The market runs from 9am to 4pm.
Don't Forget is Anna Walker and Jane Godwin's latest collaboration.
It's a timely and uplifting picture book reflecting on the important things each of us can remember to do and share with one another. Small things, like offering a
smile and important things like hoping, dreaming and imagining…
