Join us at the Library these school holidays for a special presentation and workshop with award-winning author and artist, Gabrielle Wang!

Gabrielle combines her love of adventure and the supernatural with her Chinese heritage to craft spellbinding tales and illustrations. She is the author of the highly acclaimed books Ting Ting the ghosthunter and A ghost in my suitcase books.

Both events will include a creative illustration workshop.

11–11:45am: Workshop for children 5 – 7 years, Conversation Quarter

Gabrielle takes children on a storytelling race for the Chinese zodiac.

1–2pm: Workshop for children 8 – 12 years, Conversation Quarter

Gabrielle shares the magic of her books, what life as an author is like and what sparked her love of ghosts.

Please note: One parent or carer must attend with their child/children for the duration of the onsite program.

For families with siblings across both age ranges, we suggest booking the second session if attending both is not feasible.
