This year's 20th annual Voices on the Coast Youth Literature Festival was a brilliant success. Presented by Immanuel Lutheran College and the University of the Sunshine Coast, nearly 5,000 school students from across the Coast attended 134 talks, workshops and performances by 26 leading Australian authors, illustrators, poets and performers. In total, over 10,300 tickets were sold! The adult program, Voices Plus, had a number of workshops on how to get published as well as a literary breakfast with Frances Whiting. This was the largest festival for a number of years and could not have been held without the assistance of our volunteers, Immanuel's wonderful library staff and sponsors. Thank you all!
