Book Launch: 'The Day We Built the Bridge' by Samantha Tidy, illustrated by Fiona Burrows

posted in Events on 10 January, 2019

Join both the author and illustrator for a lamington and an iced vovo at the launch launch of their children's picture book - The Day We Built the Bridge - written by Samantha Tidy, illustrated by Fiona Burrows and published by MidnightSun Publishing.

Step back in time to the 1930s - an era when Nellie Melba's voice still echoed in the Opera House, Kingsford Smith graced the skies and Phar Lap won the Melbourne Cup.

A truly Australian story celebrating determination, contribution and national endeavour. Fiona Burrows' gorgeous artwork celebrates our unique flora and takes us delightfully back to a much cherished time and place.

Big dreams can take generations. It can also take six million hand driven rivets and 53,000 tonnes of steel. The Day We Built the Bridge celebrates our connection with one another, and declares that despite the greatest of challenges, together we can make history.

Little people most welcome, and they can try their hand at some inspiring craft and painting activities, discovering native Australian flowers (and eating cupcakes!)

Paperbird is a passionate supporter of children's books, located in the heart of Fremantle.

Both the author and illustrator will be able to sign books.

Firm RSVPs greatly appreciated for catering purposes.
