Juvenilia - early works of children's authors and illustrators
Meet with some of South Australia's best children's authors and illustrators!

To celebrate the South Australian Launch of the national Juvenilia Exhibition, Unley Libraries is hosting a Creatives' Showcase. Join us to meet and greet some of SA's best children's authors and illustrators including Janeen Brian, Katrina Germein, Danny Snell and more! Ask about their creations from childhood, what it's like to be a published author/illustrator, the creative/publishing processes, and see what they're working on now.

This is the perfect event for budding writers and artists, those looking to become published and families who value rich children's literature. This exhibition and showcase gives children and visitors a chance to explore material written and illustrated by some of their favourite creatives and learn the art of perseverance, self-belief, and connection to story.

Dymocks Hyde Park will be on hand selling books from our authors/illustrators.

We encourage you to view the exhibition after your session. The exhibition will be available to view during Unley Civic Library opening hours Tuesday 18 June - Thursday 11 July.

More about the Juvenilia Exhibition

The Juvenilia Exhibition brings together the juvenile works from some of Australia's most loved and established children's authors and illustrators including Graeme Base, Andy Griffiths, Mandy Foot and Alison Lester.

Everyone starts somewhere. Whether is handwriting stories on scrap paper or drawing pictures in pencil and then rubbing them out, today's most prominent creators of children's books all started as children too, dreaming about being able to publish their own story.

Curated by author Aimee Chan, this unique and intimate collection highlights their early attempts at storytelling sure to inspire budding creatives.

Unley Libraries is thrilled to be the exclusive host of this exhibition in South Australia.

The exhibition will be available at Unley Civic Library during opening hours from Tuesday 18 June to Thursday 11 July 2024.
