We are celebrating by chatting Indigenous Picture Books Thursday 6th July at 8pm!

Dub Leffler is an Indigenous author/illustratorĀ descended from the Bigambul and Mandandanji people of south-west Queensland. His first Picture Book Once There was a Boy “is a poignant, universal story of friendship, temptation and reconciliation.” He is also the Illustrator for a number of other picture books including Frog Finds a Place. If you haven’t read them yet, be sure to check them out!


Here are the chat questions, to help get you prepared!

Q1.What is one of your favourite Indigenous picture books? (Share a photo!)

Q2.How can we better promote Indigenous picture books and their importance?

Q3.Share with us an illustration from a favourite Indigenous Picture Book. What is the context of the story?

Q4.How can we use storytime/picture books to partner with Indigenous communities?

There will also be ample time at the end to ask Dub Leffler questions so come prepared!


If you haven’t joined one of our chats before and wondering how it works head on over to our Welcome to the #picbookbc Twitter chat post!


We look forward to seeing you on Thursday night at 8pm for another #Picbookbc Twitter chat!
