Book Event: River Business (Sarah Jane Moore & Errin Polegaj)
The Hobart Bookshop, 10.30am-12.30pm, Saturday February 27th
Due to Covid-19 restrictions, this is a free event that includes session times. Booking is essential.
We are delighted to be hosting a book event with Sarah Jane Moore and Errin Polegaj, to celebrate their children's picture book River Business.
River Business brings focus to an unlikely but beautiful friendship between two night-time creatures. Through lyrical prose and soft illustrations, the book shows them sharing and overcoming their differences through joy, fun and river based play.
Sarah Jane holds a PhD in Reconciliation through Music and her research formulates ways for children to engage in Reconciliation through music and art. She is an experienced drama, music and art teacher in primary and secondary schools and has worked as an educator in child care and early learning contexts. She is a mother to three children, an artist, an auntie and lover of watery worlds.
River Business is Errin Polegaj’s first illustration project, completed while working in a local communications business and raising two wonderful and very cheeky children. From her kitchen window, Errin observes giant gums, the winding coastline and the majestic river. Her backyard is filled with the scats of the local wildlife – including the Tasmanian Bettong featured in River Business.
