Wayrba 2014

 

The 2014 artwork went off to the printers yesterday!

WAYRBA AGM
Wednesday 19th March 4pm
Morley Public Library
7 Dewar Street, Morley

Announcing our fabulous guest speaker NH3 – West Australian author of The Watermaker.

The Watermaker is an exciting adventure quest with elements of chemistry and fantasy woven through it. Set in the not too distant future it follows the adventures of Xave, Xanthe, Koa, & Lani. They must outwit a System which is about to control every aspect of their lives … and their deaths. And no-one can stop it. Except perhaps the Elementaurs. If they are real. And if they can be found in time…
Not just an adventure quest, The Elementaurs series also features a card game with creatures based on the first eighteen elements of the periodic table. It can be used to play simple games which can lead to a greater understanding of basic high school chemistry

Never attended a WAYRBA AGM before? You won’t leave empty handed!
We have Goody Bags with on the spot prizes throughout the meeting, as well as a major prize – everyone  who attends has a chance to win a school session with author illustrator James Foley.*

James Foley is a West Australian author and illustrator. He is multi-talented and the winning school session can be catered for a wide range of needs – how he started in picture books, talks about ‘The Last Viking’ or ‘In The Lion’ or even a creative workshop on cartooning or how to make your own picture books!

*Now for the fine print!
If the winning school or public library is outside the metropolitan area, it would be their responsibility to negotiate additional costs this school session may occur eg transport and/or accommodation.
