WOW! What a glorious time I had, presenting Digby Fixit Live! at this year’s Newcastle Writers Festival. A big thank you to Julie Swane from Newcastle Regional Libraries and NWF board members, for this amazing opportunity. I had a blast!

Thursday 31st March saw Digby set-up in the Link Gallery at the beautiful Newcastle Museum, ready for three delightful school groups to take part in the Digby Fixit Live! experience. Each group thoroughly enjoyed meeting Digby and helping him fatten up the moon. We engaged in lovely conversation about the moon, stories and creating picture books. Thank you for coming along, kids and teachers!

Digby also made an appearance at Saturday’s Family Fun Day, held in Laman Street and Newcastle Library, on April 2nd. Digby and I took to the stage at an almighty pace, dazzling an enthusiastic, young audience and their families with our crazy moon-antics! 🙂

It was an honour to present alongside such fine authors and illustrators. Star-struck! 🙂
