And back by popular demand, our regular drawcards: Book Launches, Trade Display, Dymocks Bookshop, Book Signings and tons of opportunties for networking with the who's who of Australian Children's literature - writers, illustrators, publishers, teachers, librarians, booksellers and our wonderful CBCA members from across Australia.
