Welcome to the Children's Festival of Moving Stories

Welcome to the 2017 Children’s Festival of Moving Stories. Held in Term Four, this year’s program features free events for primary and secondary schools.

We're thrilled to announce the return of Russ the Story Bus, who is travelling to Western Sydney and beyond, visiting schools in regional New South Wales, and for the first time, extending the adventure into regional Victoria and the ACT. Russ has a dazzling new exterior, featuring illustrations by award-winning illustrator and author Cheryl Orsini, and will be packed with the latest and greatest books for students to enjoy.

We're proud to host a fun and varied program of Author Talks and Workshops in October at local libraries across Western Sydney, led by some of Australia’s most exciting creative minds in children’s and young adult literature. This year’s Children’s Festival of Moving Stories will inspire young readers with a program that stirs imaginations and provokes discussion about writing and creativity.
