'On 22 May 2014 Publications Editor Richard Blair attended a Sydney Writers' Festival event at Darling Harbour titled 'The naked bookshelf: is book collecting an art or an obsession?' John Purcell, author and Booktopia head of marketing was the moderator. Panellists were: Australian children's author Kate Forsyth; French author and mathematician Jacques Roubaud; and by Skype hook-up from New York, illustrator, designer and author Maira Kalman. They shared some of their library and literary treasures.
After the session I approached Kate Forsyth, who kindly agreed to answer some questions if I sent them via her blog. She promptly replied ans also forwarded some related images.' (Publication summary)
