A fun, informative and inspiring day and a fantastic opportunity for students to connect with their favourite authors and discover new ones.
The hugely popular day is carefully curated to give your students an engaging and educational journey into the world of literature. Writers and illustrators talk about their creative process, stumbling blocks, successes, and take questions from the audience.
Six bestselling children’s book creators come together to share insights behind their bestselling work. You’ll meet Tasma Walton and Samantha Campbell, the team behind Nerra, a thrilling new series inspired by First Nations history; Kate & Jol Temple will turn their attention to the best (or is that worst) book baddies imaginable; Nova Weetman, author of Sick Bay, will share what she has learnt from writing TV and why she always leads with character; while American author Lev Grossman will reveal the real world problems at the core of his magical fantasy novels.
The Primary School Days program is best suited to school children in Years 3 to 6.
We acknowledge the Dharawal people as the Traditional Custodians of the land within the Sutherland Shire. We value and celebrate Dharawal culture and language, and acknowledge Dharawal people’s continuing connection to the land, sea and community. We pay respect to the Elders and their families, past, present and emerging, and through them, to all Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples.
