Coming soon: ‘From Beijing to Canberra’, an interview with Tania McCartney, author

To celebrate the launch of her new children’s picture book/travelogue, Riley and the Curious Koala, Tania McCartney will join me on Saturday, 20th November to chat about her years of living in one of the most interesting, complex cities in the world, Beijing.

We share a mutual interest in this country – I visited Beijing in the 1970s, a very different place to what that ancient city is today. I can’t wait to hear about Tania and her family’s experiences there.

Tania McCartney is an author, editor, publisher, blogger, book reviewer and mango devourer who loves writing, celebrating and supporting children’s literature – and literacy. She is the author of the Riley series of travelogue picture books, as well as several published and self-published adult books.
Riley sets out on another adventure.
Tania is also an experienced magazine writer and editor, is the founder of Kids Book Review and is a Senior Editor at Australian Women Online. She lives in Canberra with a husband, two kids and a mountain of books. See www.taniamccartney.com for more.
