1.00pm to 2.00pm
Tristan Bancks - Tristan will share a chapter from his new Ginger Meggs 100th Anniversary Book, The Dead Man’s Hill billycart race, a quintessential Ginger Meggs story. This story was partly inspired by the animated Ginger Meggs book trailer, which is about to be released. The animation was made by illustrator Jason Chatfield and producer Miranda Latimer a few years ago, and when Tristan saw it he knew that Dead Man’s Hill would make a thrilling start to the book. Students will also be given a draw your own Ginger Meggs sheet to complete in the session or take home.
