People this year have been so lovely, making my visits to schools and libraries particularly enjoyable. A recent trip up to Geelong (I wish I’d had more time so I could have spent the day, as it was lovely and sunny on the drive up and the beach looked especially appealing) saw me speak to the SLAV branch up there and I received this lovely feedback via Booked Out.
In recent years our literary has been an informal drinks function and this format has proved to be very successful. In 2012 instead of having an author promote their books, our committee decided to celebrate Australia’s National Year of Reading by inviting Bec to talk about the latest trends in young adolescent fiction. Feedback from the event has again been overwhelmingly positive!
Bec was so easy to listen to and the time literally flew. She clearly demonstrated her knowledge and enthusiasm for YA literature.
It was such a lovely evening up there and even nicer to come home to something like this!
