Night of Our Stars

The inaugural Night of Our Stars was held in November 2017 at Lamont Books. It was such a success!  

To quote the event coordinator, Michelle Nye, it was "a night where the children’s literature community shone as brightly as stars that twinkle in the sky!"
Want to know more? Read Michelle's Report on the 2017 event here.

In 2018 it will be happening again - Tuesday 13th November from 6pm!

Once again this literature event will showcase our Victorian authors and illustrators, celebrating their wonderful work.

This is a time where we can come together to share recently published books. It is also a time for teacher librarians, teachers, librarians and technicians to see authors and illustrators in action for possible future event bookings.
