I love Sydney from being overwhelmed by the talent of young opera singers singing with the Sydney Symphony Orchestra at the Sydney Opera House for the Matthia Awards – Sitiveni Talei was so brilliant singing Papageno’s aria by Mozart and he won the awards
To spectacular views of the harbour from the American Club for the pre-launch of ROOM TO READ where I saw the heart warming film of the impact of Room to Read on a little girl in Nepal and the whole community. Bringing books, schools and scholarships for girls is the only way to eradicate poverty and empower young people to fulfill who they can be.

By the way lots of Oz kids’ authors, SCBWI Australia and The Hughenden Sydney’s Arts Hotel all support Room to Read. Some authors were at the pre-launch including Markus Zusak. I was there of course. I AM JACK supports ROOM TO READ
