Over the weekend, thousands of book lovers young and old, flocked to the Mall to attend the 13th annual National Book Festival. Handley Regional Library organised a bus so lots of local bookworms could make the trip.

Festival goers listened to talks and interviews by a huge range of authors and also had the chance to meet them during book signings. Book loving children and teens had the choice of a fantastic lineup of authors and illustrators. Here are some of the great talents who took part:
