Fabulous chickens – I scored a fresh egg. (From the school’s community garden)  Thankyou chooks.

Stanmore School welcomed 3 authors – Kate Forsyth, Deb Abela and Susanne (Me) – and we told stories and had the kids rolling in the aisles!

It was a  triple event – a first time ever triple-book launch by three major publishers at an inner city Sydney school- for the kids of Stanmore :-

Deborah Abela’s ‘NEW CITY’ Penguin Random House ISBN 978 174275 855

Kate Forsyth’s ‘THE IMPOSSIBLE QUEST” Scholastic ISBN 9 781743 624067

Susanne Gervay’s ‘BEING JACK’ HarperCollins ISBN 9 780732 296148

Raising awareness of Room to Read bringing literacy to more than 9 million kids in the developing world.

It was a brilliant afternoon with totally engaged parents, kids, schooland CHICKENS.

 

Good one!

I'm a writer committed to kids in particular. Adults are good too. Want to bring hope through story to my readers. Awarded an Order of Australia, Lady Cutler Award and a Lifetime International Award for Literacy for my body of work, spreading literacy is really important. I'm head of SCBWI Australia East & New Zealand, patron of Monkey Baa Theatre, Ambassador for the Premier's Reading Challenge, Writer Ambassador for Room to Read ... among other roles. I also love heritage and adapting to enhance the lives of people today, which is why I restored The Hughenden Hotel 1870s and The Residences Centennial Park - the only homes in the parklands which are open now for accommodation, events and lots of nature.
