Leanne Barrett: Book Launch

Monday 3 April 2017

Book Launch

Today Devon Sillett launched her first book The Leaky Story, illustrated by Anil Tortop and published by EK Books.

Many children and adults gathered at  Harry Hartog Bookseller, Woden this morning to meet Canberra's newest children's author and her book. Local author, Tania McCartney introduced Devon and her first book. Tania, founder of Kids Book Review, had seen the book's manuscript many years ago and thought that it ought to be published and now here it is!  

Devon is a mother of two, book reviewer and is researching her PhD, Australian children’s picture books and gender, at the University of Canberra .

Devon's joy and energy were like a burst of sunshine in the room. And as she spoke her book The Leaky Story came to life. A story began to leak out of the pages of a book, into the Blossburns' family home. There are pirates, sword fights, a karken and a wild imagination that might led to other adventures in the future.   

As always a great book launch is followed by theme appropriate food and book signing by our newest author. Well done Devon. 

For more information about Devon see her website or Facbook page.
