Room to Read Runs for the City to Surf Race from city to Bondi Beach

Room to Read Runs for the City to Surf Race from city to Bondi Beach

80,000 people ran, walked, played in superman outfits, pushing baby strollers, in groups, teams, families …

Room to Read ran for the kids of the developing world – bringing them literacy and a future.

Love being an author Ambassador for Room to Read, together with Deborah Abela, Markus Zusak, Libby Hathorn and Tristan Bancks

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.
