Festival Season

Children’s Bookweek is over for another year. I spoke to over one thousand primary and secondary school students from across Melbourne in the course of the week. I was impressed by the number of deep readers and serious thinkers that I met. The book is definitely not dead. The Melbourne Writers’ Festival opened on Thursday night so one week of bookish celebrations overlaps another. I’ll be appearing in events at the MWF every day next week. Check out my events calendar in the side bar. Hope to see you there!
