Hello! from Australia 2018

My mentors, Books Illustrated (Ann James and Jess Haddon) has left for Bologna Children's Book Festival in Italy, leading our Australian team from 26 to 29 in March! The 2018 Hello! from Australia, a collective Australian picture book stand will promote our Australian picture books to the world, funded by the Copyright Agency Cultural Fund. This fair is the largest international book fair specialising in children’s books and is most prestigious for its particular focus on book illustration. It is a highly regarded event, popular for showcasing products and services related to the field of publishing and licensing, along with discovering new market trends in children’s book industry. If you bump the Australian team, say, "Hello!" 
I hope Ann and Jess a safe and happy trip! Go, go, Australian team!!
