August brings with it an exciting and fun opportunity for Melbourne readers, writers
and book lovers, especially Bronny and Muntsa who celebrate the Melbourne Writer’s Festival. The festival showcases a variety of authors and industry figures from an array
of different creative endeavors and backgrounds.
Here at Bronny and Muntsa we are very excited to see that the festival is hosting
a number of events which are themed around Children’s books. One such event is hosted by Jane Godwin, a writer of several successful children’s stories along with illustrative collaborator Anna Walker. Together they will share some of their stories and as well as explore different and creative ways to create them. This event will be held on Saturday the 24th of August at 11:00AM.
Another fun event will feature one of the most established names in Australian
children’s fiction: Morris Gleitzman. Along with fellow children’s author
Deborah Ellis, Glietzman will be discussing, among other things, where they
draw the line in conveying to children what the world can be like. This event
will be held on Sunday the 25th of August at 10:00AM.
Children’s stories mark most children’s first taste of fiction and begin to
open up their imaginations in all kinds of new and fantastic ways. It builds
the foundations upon which our children begin to build understandings of storytelling. It is for that reason that we here at Bronny and Muntsa are so thrilled to see that the MWF is featuring events themed
around children’s stories.
