As part of our celebrations, Marc McBride, the illustrator of the Deltora Quest series and The Glimme, both written by Emily Rodda, plus a number of picture books, held virtual workshops with the students. On Tuesday, 13th October, he delighted K – 2 students with his curious creatures. On Wednesday, 14th October, he shared his story and demonstrated his work and techniques with Years 3-6.
In the words of Ruth Bader Ginsburg, the pioneering American Supreme Court judge and women’s rights activist, who sadly passed away this year: Reading is the key that opens doors to many good things in life. Reading shaped my dreams, and more reading helped me make my dreams come true.
