I programmed the Children's Book Festival in 2014 and 2015 for State Library Victoria in partnership with the Wheeler Centre for Books, Literature and Ideas.  Each year, the Children's Book Festival incorporated a Family  Day, bringing over 13,000 children and families to the library, and an accompanying Schools Program for over 300 year 3 and 4 students from disadvantaged schools across Melbourne. The Festival showcased literature, literacy and learning, and involved 21 guest authors and illustrators and over 60 unique activities and events across a complex Festival site.
