Writers on the Road for Book Month!

Meriden School, Read across the Universe, author visit Susanne GervayIt’s hectic, emotional, wonderful as writers and illustrators hit the road travelling across Australia.

Blaxcell Public School, author visit by Susanne Gervay, I AM JACKLOVED Blaxcell Public School speaking to girls and boys:-

from 5 year old ankle-biters about Gracie and Josh who sang Incy Wincy Spider with gusto;

to 12 year olds about I AM JACK – did I love them? YES!

The girls were delightful at Meriden School in Strathfield. They loved until they cried as I told the LITTLE RED MAN joke from I AM JACK.

Aleesah Darlison and Jodie Pascale librarian Meriden SchoolI   Caught up with author Aleesah Darlison who’s written the Unicorn Riders talking at Meriden too.

Caroline Chisholm High School is nearly at Wallacia – it was lovely getting out of the city – and the girls and librarian were warm and welcoming.

I’m heading to the Central Coast on Monday to speak at the Adventist School and the Rudolf Steiner School  – so its a country jaunt for me and they’re great kids and teachers.

Love being an author ambassador for ROOM TO READ brining literacy to the children of the developing world! www.roomtoread.org,au



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.
