Book an Adventure

CBCA(Tas.) Inc. is thrilled to support the wonderful

Book an Adventure : Bruny Island Children’s Literature Festival

planned for 15 – 18 January 2015 at Adventure Bay (where else!) on Bruny Island.

Planning is proceeding most successfully with wonderful children’s literature creators such as Norman Jorgensen (The last Viking), James Foley (In the lion), Wendy Orr (Nim’s Island), Lian Tanner (The Hidden), Peter Gouldthorpe (Ice, wind, rock : Douglas Mawson in the Antarctic), and Diane Wolfer (Light Horse Boy) already signed up to be part of the Festival

Want to know more?  Visit the website www.bookanadventure.org.au to discover all the latest news on the program, and subscribe to the Festival newsletter at http://eepurl.com/7z7Z9 .

 The Festival will be launched at the Kingston Beach Digital Hub at 11 am on 2 December this year, after which bookings for the program will be available to be made on the website.  Your invitation to this launch is above.

It’s not just CBCA (Tas) Inc. which is supporting this Festival either!  Carmen Bateson, cheese maker at the Bruny Island Cheese Company, is leading a Cheese Making Workshop from 1 pm to 5 pm on Sunday 23 November at the Adventure Bay Hall.  There are still a few tickets left (go to the Book an Adventure website to make a booking) and profits from this opportunity to expand your culinary skills go to the Festival.
