The School Magazine turns 100

Enjoy a feast of who’s who in Australian children’s literature and celebrate The School Magazine’s 100th Birthday at an exhibition curated by the National Centre for Australian Children’s Literature based at UC.

The School Magazine is the longest continuously published children’s literary magazine in the world. Here are the memories of those who loved it as children – favourite stories, poems, illustrations, music and crosswords. A highlight of the exhibition is the artwork and manuscript for My Dog, first published as a short story in The School Magazine and later published as a much-awarded picture book.

Public talk: Join us at the exhibition from 4.00pm-5.00pm on Friday 14 October to hear Alan Edwards, Editor of The School Magazine, reveal highlights over the years.

Civic Library, Canberra from 23 September – 21 October 2016
