Friends Calendar for 2017

Children's Illustrator Calendar for 2017 in association with Farms for City Children

Friends Calendar 2017 CoverFollowing on from the terrific success of the Friends Calendar last year, Peter Sheldon (ex-Peters Bookselling Service and Hon YLG member!) has persuaded his illustrator friends to provide illustrations for another calendar for this year. So again, he will be producing a quality, spiral bound, A4 seasonal calendar, with illustrations from friends old and new.

So who's in? Well, Quentin Blake (he of the knighthood) is happy to maintain his presence along with Anthony Browne, Jane Ray, Nicholas Allan, Arthur Robins and Michael Foreman - spot his leaping Michael Morpurgo! Ruth Brown has promised a 'Stormy Night', and Emma Chichester Clark is back with Plumdog, whilst a warm welcome awaits Posy Simmonds with a couple of cunning foxes. Then we have Jacqui Hawkins who has uncovered a hidden treasure, oh, and there's bound to be some illustrative shenanigans from Tony Ross and Colin McNaughton . . . so I think we have another winner to keep you company throughout the events of 2017.

We are supporting Farms for City Children again, after a successful 2016, with all profits from the sale of calendars – over £500 last year - going to their charity. There will be a charge of £6.95 per copy including p&p, and distribution will take place by the end of November. If you would like to order a copy/copies (perfect for Christmas presents!), then please contact Anne Marley by October 21st deadline with your requirements.

You need to email: anne.marley@tiscali.co.uk. Please either send a cheque with your order (payable to E.A. Marley) to 8 Bolderwood Close, Bishopstoke, Eastleigh SO50 8PG   or use BACS: Account no: 40214168 Sort code: 30-99-71 and put your surname as the Reference, plus 'Cal'. You will also have to email me with your name and address and how many calendars you would like to buy. I cannot accept any orders without payment attached this year, sorry.

Many thanks for your interest
Peter Sheldon & Anne Marley.
