Roland Harvey in the library: our chance to hear him speak
The popular author/illustrator of "at the beach: postcards from crabby spit", "in the bush" and "in the city" will extend his stay on the sunshine coast to talk at Noosa library on Wednesday 4th June at 6:30pm.
Following two days of talks and workshops at voices on the coast youth literature festival at university of the sunshine coast, Roland will speak to local fans in a special evening session at the library. 
Roland Harvey's unique illustrating style, with a host of intricate details tumbling all over the page, is very accessible to young children and older readers alike.  Take this opportunity for a warm cosy chat with Roland about his art and the ideas that make his books so much fun to read.  Tea, coffee, and a warm cup of milo for the kids, will keep us warm while we listen.
