Launch of National Year of Reading Valentine's Day 2012
A great beginning to this year, I was lucky enough to be able to launch Year of Reading at a wonderful morning tea (complete with love hearts) at Woollahra Library and preached to the converted about the wonders of the written word. In the evening attended NSW State Library launch which was equally enjoyable, catching up with writer friends and libarians and other bookish folk and listenening to rousing speeches about reading. The Premier and some of his ministers attended and Richard Glover launched the event followed by writer Debra Abela giving a spirited talk about reading and also about youth who need special encouragement to learn to read. This should be the year!
