Event description

Description

May Gibbs is one of Australia’s most popular and enduring children’s book authors and illustrators. Her picture books have delighted successive generations for over 100 years. She drew her inspiration from her childhood spent visiting the bush south of Perth, and later from her large garden in Sydney’s Neutral Bay and bush walks in the Blue Mountains. An early environmentalist, she urged her readers to ‘be kind to bush creatures’. Join Alison Wishart for an illustrated talk examining the enduring influence of Gibbs' artwork and books, her charitable work and how she built her career.

Hosted by the City of Canada Bay Library Service.

Proudly presented as part of the History Council of NSW’s Speaker Connect program for History Week 2017, supported by Create NSW.
