Bring the kids to settle in for Story Time. In this session illustrator and Marvel movie nerd James Foley joins fellow author/illustrator Kylie Howarth for a reading from their most recent works.

James Foley

James makes children’s books for children who read books. If you’re a child and you’re eating his books, you’re doing it wrong. James writes and draws; he gives talks and runs workshops. He tells dad jokes. Legend says James can grow a beard in an afternoon. He lives in Perth with his wife Renae, their two kids and a Labrador called Frankie. He is a massive Marvel movie nerd and comes from a long line of queuing enthusiasts.

She has been shortlisted for the Western Australian Premier’s Writers Fellowship, SCBWI Australian Picture Book Illustrators Award, CBCA Book of the Year Awards, WAYRBA and the YABBA Awards.
