Description

Celebrate Reading Hour with children's/youth author Jaclyn Moriarty.

Jaclyn Moriarty is well-known as the prize-winning, bestselling author of novels for children, young adults (and sometimes for slightly older adults). A former media and entertainment lawyer, Jaclyn's books include the Ashbury-Brookfield series and the Colours of Madeleine trilogy. The first two books in that trilogy were both awarded the NSW Premier's Literary Award and the Queensland Literary Award. Jaclyn grew up in Sydney, lived in the US, the UK and Canada, and now lives in Sydney again. The Extremely Inconvenient Adventures of Bronte Mettlestone was shortlisted for the Readings Children's Prize, the Aurealis Award and longlisted for the CBC Book of the Year awards and was the first she has written for younger readers.

In children, reading has been shown to help with identity formation, setting them up for success in the future. In adults, reading has been shown to reduce stress by 68% more than listening to music, going for a walk, or having a cup of tea.
