The Story Within: Abbotsleigh Literary Festival 2018
The Junior and Senior Schools were buzzing with excitement as the 2018 Abbotsleigh Literary Festival was launched on Tuesday this week.
Abbotsleigh's first Literary Festival was held in 2003, the vision of former Headmistress Mrs Judith Wheeldon. This biennial event runs over three days and is a community event. This year, due to the tremendous energy and hard work of Mrs Bronwyn Foxall, Head of Library, her team, and so many members of staff across the School, our girls and guests from visiting schools were treated to more than 40 authors, illustrators, poets and literary experts sharing their skill and insight.
The girls and I would like to warmly thank and congratulate everyone who contributed to this very successful event.
Please enjoy some scenes from the Senior School sessions. Next week we will share the all the colour and excitement from the Junior School.
The presenters pictured below are: John Larkin, Erin Gough, Abdi Aden, James Phelan, Tohby Riddle, Philip Wilcox, Alison Goodman, Boori Pryor, Cath Crowley, Nova Weetman, Shakespeare Interactive, Eileen Chong, Will Kostakis, Tara Eglington
