Calling all Hairy Maclary fans

26 Feb, 2020

There's Hercules Morse, Bitzer Maloney, Muffin McLay, Bottomley Potts, Schnitzel von Krumm and, of course, the famous Hairy Maclary from Donaldson's Dairy.

Join Wodonga Library and Arts Space Wodonga at Wodonga Plaza tomorrow (February 27) for Lynley Dodd: Hairy Maclary Pop-Up from 11am to noon as we enjoy the wonderful books brought to us by the renowned author and illustrator of the bestselling Hairy Maclary series.

Stick around after Storytime for a free craft session where those of all ages can make a doggie mask to wear to the upcoming Upstream Festival on the March long weekend.

As part of the festival, there will be an Exhibition Floor Talk: The Lynley Dodd Story on March 8 from 12.30pm to 1pm.

Come along to the free event and explore the author's exhibition with curator Penelope Jackson. The exhibition runs from February 8 to April 26 at Albury LibraryMuseum.

Did you know that Dodd herself will be coming to the Upstream festival?

Meet Dodd in the flesh at Upstream's The Dogs Breakfast event. Bring along your pooch to QEII Square (which is an on-lead park) on March 7 from 8am and enjoy a morning of tail-wagging fun with your furry friend celebrating all things Hairy Maclary.

This pawsitively pooch-friendly morning will feature pawesome breakfast options, activities, stalls, events and workshops including a book signing with Dodd.
