It's on again! The Big Book Day Out is a FREE fun-filled family event organised by the Children's Book Council of Australia NSW Branch. Held in the beautiful grounds of the NSW Writers' Centre, Callan Park, Rozelle, it's a day of celebrating books with the opportunity to meet some of your favourite authors, including Ted Prior - creator of Grug. You'll also get to see illustrators working their magic, visit the story tent, have fun on the jumping castle, enjoy performances, create something special in the Make and Do area and browse the bookshop. You can also bring your books along and have them signed by authors on the day.

Highlights include Jacqueline Harvey, Gus Gordon, Yvette Poshglian, R.A. Spratt, Tristan Bancks, Sue Whiting and more.

Have to admit I've converted to reading books now on my Kindle or iPad... But I used to love going to book fairs or scouring thru second hand bookshops:)
