Event description

Description

Join award-winning author Alice Pung as she discusses her recently published book On John Marsden, part of the Writers on Writers Series in which celebrated Australian storytellers reflect on a literary figure who has inspired and fascinated them.

Alice examines John’s approaches to writing for his audience and his perspective on what it means to be a teenager. He is a best sellling author who refuses to patronise his young readers, presenting thought-provoking issues around morality, violence and family dysfunction. In response Alice asks ‘How much darkness is allowed in young adult fiction before it is considered a bad influence?’

This discussion will be facilitated by Catherine du Peloux Menangé. Catherine is an educational publisher and is the joint creator, artistic director and facilitator of the St Albans Writers’ Festival.

Books will be available for purchase on the night.

This event is free. Enquiries: 9093 6400
