Family Fun Day at Newcastle Writers Festival

http://www.newcastlewritersfestival.org.au/2017-program/

This year marks the 5th anniversary of the Newcastle Writers Festival. The Family Fun Day is being held on Saturday 8 April, at Wheeler Place (outside Civic Theatre).

The line up for the day looks great. Local illustrators Liz Anelli, Gwynneth Jones and Kirrili Lonergan have planned a fun and interactive session, and Richard Roxburgh will be attending. There will also be a celebration of the 20th anniversary of Harry Potter!

Here is the Family Fun Day program from the Festival website:
