Bookfeast is a Festival that celebrates the contribution of children's literature in facilitating engagement between the ideas and imagination of Australian writers and illustrators
and young people. Through these interactions this Festival aims to encourage children from all over Sydney to enjoy and appreciate the written word. The young participants come from all nationalities and many have grown up with some very unique experiences and are learning to overcome difficult social issues. Bookfeast provides the space and creative opportunity for young people to come face to face with writers and illustrators, gaining an insight into their practice and also the world of writing.
This event is a NOT FOR PROFIT function where authors and illustrators are invited to attend and donate their services and has been running consecutively for the last 15years. Michael Fraser, Teacher Librarian from Haberfield Primary School has kindly donated his time freely over the past year, in the interest of children and books. Even though some Authors bring along some of their books to sell at Bookfeast, it is primarily an event focused at giving back to the community.
Bookfeast is an annual event which has grown to become extremely popular and highly valued literary festival for students from both public and private schools (including primary and secondary schools) in the South West Sydney metropolitan region.
The event aims to encourage young people to read and to recognise the value and contributions of Australian literature. It is a chance for more than 500 school children and their Teacher Librarians to share lunch and conversation with some of their favourite Australian authors and illustrators.
This year, Bookfeast is being held on Thursday, 16th September 2010 at 96 Shaftesbury Rd, Burwood . We hope to continue to attract over 30 authors and illustrators to donate their time between 10:30 am and 2:00 pm for the event. Each author will be seated at a table of 9 students, accompanied by their Teacher Librarian. We ask you to share your ideas and thoughts about your work, how you got started, and why you love what you do.

This is a non-profit event. As such, we consider every author, illustrator and publisher to be 'supporters' of Bookfeast - to promote literacy, education and awareness of Australian literature.
If you are able to give us your much valued time and support on the day, or would like more information, please contact:
