Orange schoolgirl Myra Lim-Hurt has collaborated with a South Australian artist to produce a 16-page picture book All That I Am to be launched at Orange City Library on 23 June at 5pm. Twelve-year-old Myra Lim-Hurt wrote the poem as part of a class project at Kinross Preparatory School last year. She was born in Singapore and now lives in Orange. Artist Sally Heinrich has illustrated more than 20 children's books, published four picture books and a novel. She has lived in Singapore, Malaysia, Sydney and Darwin and now resides in Adelaide, South Australia.
The book launch for All That I Am will be held on Wednesday 23 June at 5pm for 5.30pm. Please RSVP by calling the Library on 6393 8132. All That I Am is published by Orange Press, an independent book publisher and packager based in Orange, NSW. Kinross P & F will be selling books on the night. Come along to congratulate Myra on her achievement and hear this delightful story and see the beautiful illustrations. See you there!
