A wonderful event to introduce the StoryArts Festival Ipswich was held on Wednesday evening 11 March 2015 at Ipswich Central Library. Mark Greenwood talked about two of his books Simpson and his donkey and Midnight and how stories about animals and their relationship with men can introduce children to the impact of war. We were lucky to also have illustrator Frane Lessac with us as we took in the images on the screen that she created as a result of thier research and travels overseas. This was our first taste of the StoryArts Festival to be held in September, when Mark will be eback tot alk to cildren and adutls again.
Jenny Stubbs gave a presentation to introduce the festival program.
