LEARN how to draw 'The Clunkertons' at a cartooning workshop and meet the author of this quirky children's book series at Coffs Harbour Library on Monday.


Local author Robyn McLennan and 'The Clunkertons' illustrator and local cartoonist Jules Faber will be hosting a morning tea and chat to mark the launch of their second book in the series - 'The Clunkertons and Their Unforgettable Journey'.


"Robyn is a real inspiration who proves that you're never too old or too young to start writing successfully," said Library Manager Enzo Accadia.


"The fact that she found her illustrator, Jules, on her own doorstep after searching high and low for someone who understood her characters is also a great story in itself - and we're looking forward to them both talking about their collaboration, and how it works, at the launch."


The Morning Tea and Book Launch will be held at 10am on Monday, July 9. Everyone is welcome to attend.


At 10.30-11.30am on the same day, Jules Faber will also run a School Holidays Cartoon Workshop on 'How to draw The Clunkertons' at the Regional Art Gallery, next door to the Library.

 

Anyone over the age of eight is welcome to come along. Entry is $5 and art materials will be supplied.

 

Places for the workshop are limited, so booking is advised. Call 6648 4900 or email coffs.library@chcc.nsw.gov.au to secure a place.
