Book Links Queensland is giving you the chance to rub shoulders with authors and illustrators alike with their annual Romancing the Stars Event at The Terrace, State Library of Queensland. Twenty children’s authors and illustrators including Allison Rushby,  Karen Foxlee, James Moloney, Lucia Masciullo and David Cox will talk to small groups of guests in a ‘speed dating’ style. They will share their insights into recent and upcoming publications and their creative process.

The event brings authors and illustrators together with readers: allowing the creators to promote their works; and the readers to connect with their favourite authors and illustrators.  Romancing the Stars is the only event of its kind in Queensland and is a rare opportunity for children’s book lovers and enthusiasts.

Guests will also be able to purchase books from The Library Shop and artworks from some of the illustrators.  Prior to the main event, guests will be able to mingle with the authors and illustrators.

Townsville author and comedian Tristan Savage will also make a guest appearance.

Food and beverages will be provided.
