Like minds: Creating Tashi

Tashi is one of Australia's most beloved children's series and, remarkably, is written by an amazing mother-daughter team. In this session, designed for parents and children to attend together, Barbara and Anna Fienberg share how they work together to unleash their intergenerational creativity, fuse their imaginations, and delight readers. Join the Sydney Jewish Writers Festival and PJ Library as we explore the joys and challenges of writing Tashi, and how relationships can be forged and strengthened through the act of creating, together. Be inspired to be creative with your child.
