Big Birthday Bash + awesome authors
The first event of my working calendar? The Centre for Youth Literature's big 2-1 on February 21. Yep, CYL (the organisation I coordinate) is finally welcoming those years where one really "find" themselves :)
We're having a big slap up affair in Queens Hall at the State Library of Victoria with 21st speeches from Melina Marchetta and David Levithan.
Melina and David.
There will also be a panel of many celebrated faces in Australian youth literature chaired by CYL's founder Agnes Nieuwenhuizen.
Plus there will be refreshments including CAKE!
We're also hosting a fabulous schools program that features a bookgig, an author discussion and writing workshops (Melina, David, Alison Goodman, Michael Pryor, Cath Crowley or Simmone Howell).
It's a ripper of a program.
