Books, babies and blow ups

The Perth Writer's Festival this year was a smorgasbord of rich and rewarding events,  On Sunday the majestic trees of the tropical garden hosted  the children's program and the previously sedate atmosphere of the University of WA came alive with colour and voices as the children explored writing, bookmaking, printing and sewn stories, played with  baby animals and magnetic letters and enjoyed storytelling and circus skills. 

The big red ball had appeared overnight, wedged under the library walkway - a big squishy ball to bounce off. Perhaps the most excitement was generated by the the inflatable lotus in the reflection pool, designed by renowned Korean artist Choi Jeong Hwa, here for the Festival of Perth, which magically opened and closed as you watched.
