From 17-23 August 2019 we celebrate CBCA Book Week with a visit from the outstanding author Peter Carnavas on Tues 20 & Wed 21 August. Talara’s amazing P & C once again sponsor the engaging author visit which ignites passion for students to continue their writing journey. Carnavas’s Blue Whale Blues was awarded the Society of Children's Book Writers and Illustrators Crystal Kite Award in 2016 and My Sister is a Superhero (written by Damon Young) won an Australian Book Industry Award in 2017. His novel, The Elephant, won the Children's Book Award at the Queensland Literary Awards in 2018 and was short-listed in the CBCA Book Week Awards.

COSTUME DRESS-UP DAY

Costume dress-up day will take place on Wednesday 21 August. “Helping Hands” have sponsored this event with one student from every class having an opportunity to win “most original costume”. Special year level parades will occur throughout Wednesday whereby students will be awarded their Angus and Robertson Book Vouchers. You are welcome to dress-up with the theme “READING is my SECRET POWER” or as your favourite book character.

Throughout the year, the Children's Book Council of Australia (CBCA) works in partnership with authors, illustrators, publishers, booksellers and other organisations in the children’s book world to bring images and stories into the hearts and minds of children and adults. In 1946 the CBCA established annual book awards to promote Australian children’s books of outstanding literary and artistic quality. These awards are now the most influential and highly respected in Australia.

The CBCA Book of the Year Awards Winner and Honour Books will be announced on Friday 16 August and CBCA Book Week commences the following day.
