Children's Picture Book Launch: A Winter's Kiss by Heidi James


Join us for an enchanting children’s book launch event celebrating the release of a heartwarming winter’s tale!

Newport local and homegrown author Heidi James invites you to the launch of her debut picture story book. A local primary school teacher, Heidi has raised four children and in her spare time she dabbles in writing and is an avid fan of quality picture story books for her classroom and home. She believes everyone has a story to tell.

Heidi will share her inspiration for A Winter’s Kiss, the unexpected backstory, and her publishing journey. The book is a whimsical journey through the seasons through the eyes of a child, and reminds all readers, children and adults alike, to notice the beauty and joy that each season can bring.

At a deeper level, the book is about growing up, responding to change, and the dawning realisation that our world is way bigger and more complex than first understood. The book is beautifully and delightfully illustrated, full of rich language and themes to unpack.

Books will be available to purchase and a portion of proceeds raised on the night will go towards supporting women and children in Ukraine.

Come in from the cold for a tale and a yarn. Light refreshments will be provided.


This free event is supported by Hobsons Bay Libraries Homegrown Authors’ program. Learn more about Heidi James here
