Theme: Dreaming with eyes open…
Dates: August 20-26 2022
Artwork: Jasmine Seymour
On 1st September 2021 the CBCA announced the theme for Book Week 2022 with the help of children’s picture book creator and Darug woman Jasmine Seymour, who won the CBCA Award for New Illustrator in 2020 for her beautiful book ‘Baby Business’ (published by Magabala Books).
We chose the first day of spring to make the announcement because September 1st is Indigenous Literacy Day in Australia this year and our 2022 CBCA Book Week theme is ‘Dreaming with eyes open…’
Watch announcement video here.
See “Baby Business” being read on Story Box Library here.
Keep an eye out at the CBCA website for more soon.
What do you think of the theme? I’m looking forward to celebrating it next year!
