Perth Team support 2018 National English Teachers Conference

(L-R) Jamie Snadden, Bill Byford, Mem Fox, Bev Jacobson, Mike Ellis

Our local team in Perth had 3 outstanding days at the AATE/ALEA National Conference at the Perth Conference Centre.

With a range of fantastic authors signing books at the conference, Bev Jacobson, Emma Thompson, Bill Byford, Jamie Snadden and Mike Ellis worked like crazy, selling 900 books in 3 days!

Our Library and Literacy Specialist, Bev Jacobson did a fantastic job of sourcing books for the conference and her knowledge and passion for literature came to the fore in many conversations with English teachers from across the country.

We were thrilled to get the following notes following the conference from authors Dianne Wolfer, who writes books across genres for teenagers and young readers, and Mem Fox, Australia’s foremost writer of picture books for young children.

Dear Bev and Campion Education Team

Thanks so much for all you do to support WA authors 😊

Your enthusiasm for children’s literature is infectious and it was wonderful to see so many of my titles for sale.
Hopefully there won’t be too many boxes to carry back!

Best wishes and thank you

Dear everyone at Campion,

Thank you for selling every single one of my books at the ALEA/AATE conference earlier this week. I’m so grateful! You were cheerful and lovely, and made me feel special.
