The focus of the presentation will be on Edyth’s new book, Snitch, which was published in May this year. It’s a book about mothers and sons, bully boys and tough girls, falling in love for the first time, and of course, a dog with anger issues.

Susie Dineen has had her very first picture book for children published by Struik this year. It is called Nombulelo and the Moth and is illustrated by Maja Sereda. SCBWI is thrilled to share her excitement and joy at seeing her idea turned into a story. We’re looking forward to a reading.

There’ll also be lots of time for questions and informal discussion.

All welcome - members and non-members. This event is for illustrators and writers.
