I’m very excited about the Williamstown Literary Festival this year.
Some time ago, I was contacted by the Chapter Five Book Club, a group of passionate young readers from the Mornington Peninsula. Chapter Five were keen to visit my part of town and talk story. I suggested we organize a get-together to coincide with the Festival. And thanks to the Willy Lit Fest program committee, you can join us:
WHERE: The Festival HUB
WHEN: Sunday 1 June
TIME: 12.30 – 1.00 Chapter Five Book Club will be discussing ‘Wonder' by R.J. Palacio as well as talking about their favourite reads.
Following a short break I will be telling some Wonder Tales from Germany, Spain and Kazakhstan.
TIME: 1.30 -2.30 in the HUB
Both events are FREE and we hope some other young story lovers will join us. Chapter Five are in year 7.
If you haven’t read ‘Wonder’ and don’t have the time between now and the Festival, that’s OK. You will still enjoy the discussion, I promise, and Chapter Five want to hear what other folks are reading – so please, please bring a book to share!
