We are very excited to announce that due to overwhelming popular demand, the Phil Cummings: Stories behind the books exhibition has now been extended to Sunday 29 September 2019.

This interactive exhibition takes you into the creative mind of award-winning South Australian author Phil Cummings. From his first book, Goodness Gracious! to his latest award-winning picture book, Boy, Phil's career spans 30 years and more than 60 publications. He continues to enchant, entertain and engage young readers today.

Put together from the State Library collections as well as Phil's personal materials and manuscripts, this exhibition is a rare opportunity to discover the secrets and stories behind Phil's approach to the creative process of writing.

Co-designed with children from Peterborough, this interactive exhibition is sure to delight children of all ages.
