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.
SusieDineenhas had her very first picture book for
children published by Struik this year. It is called Nombulelo and the Moth and is illustrated by MajaSereda.
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.
