Published on 19 April 2022
On Tuesday, April 12 the Broome Public Library held a book launch for the children’s book “Ollie the Ornithopod Makes New Friends” - written by Simon Milsom and illustrated by Kerry Anne Jordinson.
At the launch was illustrator Kerry Anne and Michelle Teoh, a representative from the Dinosaur Coast Management Group. The author Simon at the time was sailing from Fremantle to Broome. He had however sent a video of himself reading the book and this was played during drawing time.
Kerry Anne introduced the main character of the book to the audience and provided an outline of how she brought the character to life. An explanation of how the real Ollie walked was given by Michelle.
The event wound up with a drawing workshop delivered by Kerry Anne - much to the delight of all the participants!
