Dinner at the Story Arts Festival Ipswich Adult Program

Saturday, September 12th, 2015.

What a fabulous night, dinner was delicious and so was the  entertainment by Australia’s top children’s authors and illustrators.

The crowd enjoyed performances by Valanga Khoza and Matt Ottley on kalinga, drums and guitar and Gregg Dreise on guitar.

There was a hilarious visit from Josie Montano and her alter-ego Nonna and Archie Fusillo.

The illustrator battle was fierce and started before dinner with the transformation of table decorations by the illustrators. Oliver Phommavanh as MC pumped up the artists and eventually it was Ann James who took out the title and the major prize of a ‘colour-by-numbers-with-water book’.

But most of all this was a fabulous opportunity to relax, mix, mingle and enjoy the company of the hard working presenters, volunteers and attendees of the Story Arts Festival Ipswich, 2015.

To get an idea of the fabulous atmosphere here is a photo gallery by author Dimity Powell.
