11 May 2019 - At special Q&A and reading sessions, for children, with Joy Cowley, at the Featherston Booktown 2019 festival, now in its 5th year – Joy shared her newest children’s book ‘One and a Half Million Buttons’. This book was written inspired by the ‘Button Project’ of the Moriah School, and encapsulates the project’s development from inception, button collection to finally the Children’s Holocaust Memorial being launched November 2018. Whilst the book is suitable for reading ages 7 – 9 it has already been embraced by young and old. With the message firmly embedded, to remember the children killed during the Holocaust and to accept and embrace diversity, Joy Cowley reaches young readers through visuals and text. Thank you to Joy for your work and your wisdom. Dame Joy Cowley is the Patron of the Children’s Holocaust Memorial.
