Book Readings at Government House Open Day

Sunday 14 March 2010

10am - 4pm

Government House, Canberra

The Smith Family will again be hosting their annual, major fundraising event at Government House in Yarralumla, Canberra. The event is a family fun day out with all proceeds going to The Smith Family - an organisation that provides assistance for disadvantaged students and families to reach their full potential through a suite of learning programs.

There will be tours of Government House and gardens, an art show, centre stage and roving entertainment, activities for children, and demonstrations and displays. Last year over 8,000 people attended this unique experience.

I am so honoured to have been asked to read my books at the Storytelling Marquee (along with the illustrious Ingrid Jonach). This part of the day is aimed at involving children and encouraging them to read and write their own stories - or to simply enjoy literature.

For a day of fantastical family ambience, culture, food, singing, pony rides and flat out fun, do come along. I will be reading at 11am and at 12pm. Hope to see you there!

For more information, call 02-6283 7602.
