Readers, reading and authors -it’s all happening in 2018

On March 1 SLAV held the first of the Reading Forum Series for 2018.

This forum, held at Melbourne Grammar School, focused on books for primary students with six publishers sharing their new titles for 2018 with the audience.   Authors Anna Walker and Jane Godwin then spoke about their beautiful new picture book Go Go and the Silver Shoes.

Another author SLAV have pleasure in presenting is the talented author of Nona & Me,  Claire Atkins.  Inset below is a conversation between Claire and students from University High School.  Their conversation provides an insight into Claire’s stunning new novel about two teenagers separated by cultural differences, their parents’ expectations and twenty kilometres of barbed-wire fence.  A story of refugees, detention and real people.

Reading Promotion is the topic of the second Reading Forum to be held Ivanhoe Girls’ Grammar School on 10 May.  Don’t miss it!  Register on the SLAV website
