Mamma Knows West & Aly's Book Fest, Altona

Attention: Westies! This morning I caught up with Sammi from Mamma Knows West & Aly from Aly's Books to chat about Book Fest, Altona, 20th August, 1pm - 3pm.

Aly’s Books and Mamma Knows West are delighted to announce the return of their free community event Books’ Fest which had its highly successful inaugural year last year. Hosted by Hobsons Bay City Council at Altona Library on Queen Street in Altona, Saturday 20th August, it offers a unique and family friendly way to kick off the 2016 Book Week for children and parents in the inner west of Melbourne.

The day will offer an opportunity to meet your favourite local authors and illustrators as well see some new terrific emerging talents on the Melbourne literary scene. The program will include storytellers, musicians, craft and all sorts of performers for the little ones to enjoy! 

I caught up with organisers Sammi from Mamma Knows West and Aly from Alys Books to ask them all about it...
