Death of Margaret Hamilton AM

In accordance with Margaret's wishes we held an afterparty for her at the Carrington in Katoomba. It was a huge success and Margaret would have been very pleased that over 200 people attended. Thank you to everyone who took part.

We will be leaving some parts of the website up for anyone wishing to revisit Pinerolo newsletters featuring Margaret's mini reviews of picture books, or podcasts of her interviews wth children's picture book creators.
