Sue Martin and the Books go Walkabout team are in Hong Kong this week. (May 2016)

Working in partnership with The Kellett School, with generous funding from the school Annual Fund, Sue and a fabulous creative team of authors, photographers and poets, are delivering Book Fest across two campuses on the island.

The programme of work, is designed to add value to the schools curriculum around writing, story creation and delivery, as well as creativity and critical thinking about form and content.

The work is delivered by Australian Author Carole Wilkinson, Nigerian author and photographer Ifeoma Onyefulu and poet and writer Cheryl Moskowitz.

After the week long event we will be publishing our learning and recommendations for trans-continental book and literacy project delivery, as well as celebrating, in detail, the work of the children who were enthused and creatively encouraged by our authors. Watch this space for details.
