LIBBY Hathorn, a popular and award-winning poet and author of more than 50 books, some of which have been translated into several languages and adapted for stage and screen, will be coming to the Dubbo Library this August for some family fun.
Join Libby for an active evening of entertainment at the Dubbo library on August 14 at 5.30pm.
Everyone, from mums to dads, kids to interested writers, is invited to come and take part in an interactive reading based on Libby’s book ‘I love you book’ and then write a poem together that will surprise everyone.
Libby will also briefly discuss the process that happens to take an idea all the way to a published book.
Libby’s passion for writing and literature has been well recognised including
nominations as an Australia Day Ambassador and an ambassador for the National Year of Reading, 2012, as well as being a poetry ambassador for the Society of Women Writers National Advisory Committee.
Her work has won commendations in Australia, United States, United Kingdom and Holland including a Centenary Medal, highly commended in the Prime Minister’s Literary Awards 2010 and being short-listed for the SWW Biennial Book Awards 2011.
The 100 Views program encourages the art form of poetry and Libby also conducts workshops in schools, libraries, museums and universities in Australia and internationally.
Her most recent book A Boy Like Me: a story about peace is illustrated by Bruce Whatley.
Don’t miss this fantastic opportunity to spend some quality time with your family and a world famous Australian author.
