Book Launch of Christmas Under the Overpass

Join local children’s book illustrator Katrina Fisher and Melbourne author Katie Flannigan to celebrate the launch of their new picture book, Christmas Under the Overpass on Saturday 4 November 2023 from 10.30 am - 12 pm at Leopold Library, Leopold Community Hub, 31-39 Kensington Rd, Leopold Vic 3224.

Join in the family fun at the Leopold Library with a story time, craft activity, book signing and door prizes. Books will be available for purchase on the day. 

It is Christmas time, and a homeless man sets up a makeshift home under a bridge, across the river from Melody's house. Their homes are different. Their lifestyles are different. Their cultures are different. What will Melody think about her new neighbour? How will they get on?

Christmas Under the Overpass is a delightful, sensitive, heart-warming story of compassion, curiosity, and empathy for the unhoused and marginalised in society. 

Christmas Under the Overpass explores the realities of those who are unhoused, and the kindness of a child.
