Big Birthday Bash + awesome authors

I've hit the ground running in 2012.

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.

Cool huh?

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.

Everything you need to know can be found here.
