The amazing writer and illustrator Shaun Tan was recently in Bendigo and although I missed seeing him I know a few our amazing library staff were there to get the low down on how he creates his beautiful and touching books to inspire us all.

You'll no doubt have heard or seen his amazing book 'The Arrival' which for a book with NO WORDS is very touching indeed.
