HeARTlines in Mundairing

Although Children’s Book Week is over for another year, the fun ain’t over yet – because the HeARTlines Festival is just getting started.

This biennial festival celebrates children’s literature and book illustration, and is held at the Mundairing Arts Centre in the Perth hills. This year HeARTlines is dedicated to the memory of the festival’s founder, WA author Louise Schofield. Louise was an incredible woman and it’s an honour to be a part of her festival this year.
