Lost Words with Julianne Negri
Do you know what a throttlebottom is? A snollygoster? We were thrilled to be joined by Julianne Negri for a writing and wordplay workshop celebrating the joy of words lost and found as part of this year's Brimbank Writers & Readers Festival. Julianne's novel The Secret Library of Hummingbird House is a notable book for this year’s CBCA Book of the Year: Younger Readers. The workshop was a great success, and Julianne has kindly supplied a glossary of lost words and downloadable activity pack that readers are sure to love!
