Celebrating 100 Years of Ginger Meggs

Published on Sunday, 21 November 2021 at 9:00:00 AM

Ginger Meggs –  an iconic Australian celebrity. 

We're celebrating 100 years of the iconic character and Aussie legend Ginger Meggs. This new book features four brand new and original stories are written by Tristan Bancks, the great-great nephew of original creator Jimmy Bancks, and illustrated in full colour by the current Meggs comic strip artist, Jason Chatfield. Kids and grown-ups alike will revel in the rambunctious adventures and comical capers of the ginger kid who never gets old.

For our Celebrate Reading National Conference this year (2021), we were lucky to have author Tristan Bancks present to our delegates and Centre staff also arranged for a small selection Ginger Meggs prints to be displayed. We encourage anyone who would like to view them to come down during business hours.
