Two amazing events are coming up at Pinerolo, the Children's Book Cottage in Blackheath, New South Wales. I don't care how you get there, but get there if you can.
An Afternoon with Wild Animals

This promises to be a fascinating afternoon listening to author/photographer Jan Latta, who will talk about her up-close-and-personal adventures with wild animals. Jan leads such an exciting life and she produces books full of superb photographs on endangered wild animals, with the aim of educating children.
