Our current issue of PaperTigers is entitled Journeys and includes an interview with Australian Gabrielle Wang in which she talks about her journey from an artist to a children’s book writer. Gabrielle’s newest book for middle grade readers The Wishbird is being launched this weekend and all are invited to attend! Signed limited edition Giclee prints (very high quality prints) of selected internal illustrations will be available for sale on the day.
Imagine a world without music.
Imagine if all the singers and musicians disappeared, never to be seen again. Music is outlawed. Even birds are killed because they sing. And because birds live in forests then the forests all around are burnt to stumps.
Music is an integral part of human existence. Every culture in the world makes music. Without it, the soul dies.
This is at the heart of The Wishbird.
WHEN: SATURDAY JULY 27, 3PM
WHERE: THE LITTLE BOOKROOM
759 Nicholson St, Carlton North VIC
