Harbour Kids Tent

300 mins

Where the grown-ups see the crack in the pavement, Alice sees the flowers growing there; and when the bus is running a few minutes late, she knows it’s just extra time to make friends with her fellow passengers. In Lindsay Zier-Vogel’s new book, Dear Street, Alice decides to write love letters to all the things that make her neighbourhood special – perfect and imperfect alike.

Now it’s your turn! Stop by, say hi to Lindsay and learn about The Love Lettering Project – a chance to write your own love letter to all the best bits of your neighbourhood; then, take it with you and hide the letter in your favourite spot for someone else to find. You just might help them find beauty in an unexpected place.

Suitable for all ages.
