Book Reading: Anne Helen Donnelly 'Ori the Octopus'
10th Aug @ Berkelouw Balgowlah
Join us in store where local childrens author Anne Helen Donnelly will be reading from her amazing Ori the Octopus series to celebrate Love Your Bookshop Day this year!
This year bookshops across Australia are throwing a party and you are invited! Love Your Bookshop Day is a chance to celebrate what makes your local bookshop great. Whether it’s for their amazing staff, their carefully curated range or specialisation or a must-see events program, come by the store to celebrate everything great about indie bookshops! Local childrens author, Anne Helen Donnelly, is reading from her beloved Ori the Octopus series all about friendship and helping others.
Anne lives in Sydney with her husband and her two young children. She has always loved to read, write, draw and crafts. And having her children has allowed her to do more of all of that! She has taught dance, been an entertainer at childrens parties, and reads and teaches art and craft. She paints childrens canvasses and makes greeting cards. She has now also created YouTube videos to entertain children. Anne has been encouraged to share her story-telling, her illustrations and her creativity resulting in Ori the Octopus.
Ori the Octopus was closely followed by Ori’s Christmas, both released in 2017. In 2018 Anne combined another of her passions, care of the environment, in her third book Ori’s Clean-up, which was released in July. Anne is a member of the Children’s Book Council (cbca), the Society of Children’s Book Writers and Illustrators (SCBWI) and the Australian Society of Authors (asa).
