Australian Children’s Laureate: Now and Forever November

Friday, 1 November, 2019 @ 12:00am AWST

From Morris Gleitzmann on the Australian Children’s Laureate (ACL) website:
At the beginning of this year, flushed with optimism and excitement, a new children’s laureate contemplated the things he would include in his laureate calendar. Not just months, other stuff too.

His plan was for a year-long paying of respect to the ways stories change us, usually for the better if we have adequate lighting. A calendar year, the laureate hoped, that would culminate in a glorious celebration of stories and everything they’ve always offered us, and still do now, and will forever. 

Well here we are, Now And Forever November, close to the end of the year. Time to celebrate, right? Let’s break out the fizzy drinks and the sparkling lights and the sparkling fizzy librarians.

Hmmm. Maybe not. I don’t want to be a party-pooper, but maybe we’re not quite ready to fully celebrate just yet…
