2020 Christmas Party Wrap-up

Blue Mountains Sub-branch members were delighted to have both Ursula Dubosarsky and Tohby Riddle as guests at our 2020 Christmas dinner, held at Le Petit Chalet, North Katoomba in late November. Ursula spoke of her role as Children’s Laureate and what she hopes to achieve during her tenure. Tohby engaged the audience with the background to his 2020 short-listed book, Yahoo Creek. We were delighted to have a preview of Ursula’s and Tohby’s new book, The March of the Ants.
