Paper Bird, Children's Books & Arts
Fremantle's newest independent bookshop.
Paper Bird has found a nest among friends at the historic Moores Building, alongside the Moore Gallery and the Moore & Moore Cafe, on Henry Street. Close by to other independent bookshops, New Edition and Bill Campbell's Books, along with Notre Dame University, Paper Bird is helping create a literary precinct in the West End of Fremantle.
A dedicated story house has evolved around the bookshop with writers, story tellers & illustrators on hand, workshops, kids book clubs, animation screenings, book launches, and discussion panels in planning to make for a dynamic children's cultural hub. The children's specialist bookshop stocks quality books, focusing on Australian writers and illustrators, along with children's art supplies for budding illustrators. Indigenous stories are featured at Paper Bird with local writers and illustrators from Magabala Books and Fremantle Press having dedicated shelves. And we have weekly story telling under the beautiful tree in the courtyard.
Jennifer Jackson - Director of Paper Bird
Jennifer Jackson is the Director of Paper Bird Children's Books & Arts. Having worked in London, Perth and Melbourne in child mental health services and an avid visitor and supporter of children's literature and arts centres across the world, she has collected her ideas, vision and enthusiasm to create a story house for children in Fremantle where there is a wealth of local children's writers, illustrators and story tellers.
There is something for kids of all ages, right up to young adults. Grown ups are welcome too if they don't get in the way of the fun.
