Dorrie Window 
Harry Hartog bookstore, Westfield Woden, Canberra 
Monday 9 April 2023
Pop in and see my Dorrie window at Harry Hartog bookstore - I will be installing on Easter Monday, and I'll leave behind some signed copies of Dorrie and some of my other books!

Dorrie Event at the State Library of New South Wales
11.30am - 12.30pm
Friday 21 April 2023
Join me at the State Library of NSW on Friday 21 April for a journey through the illustrations in Dorrie - my picture book on the life of Dorothy Wall, creator of Blinky Bill.

We’ll do a book reading, then will compare illustration styles with Dorothy’s works. There’ll also be some of her original artwork on display!

Kids will also enjoy an illustration tutorial on some of Australia’s most beautiful plants and animals. My little Blinky Bill toy from the 1970s may help out, too.

There will be some Dorrie colouring sheets to take home and I’ll be signing some books, too.

The event runs from 11:30am to 12:30pm. Head to the State Library of NSW website for more info and to book.

I'm thrilled to announce I will be available for Children's Book Week in 2023. I'll only be available for Zoom sessions, however, this means I will be able to visit schools all over Australia! Sessions will be available from Monday 19 to Friday 25 August 2023. Email me booksATtaniamccartney.com for session ideas and rates. Spaces will fill fast, so get in quick!
