Author Talk: Zana Fraillon 12:00pm AEDT 19th October Years 5-8
Join multi-award winning, Melbourne based author Zana Fraillon as she shares her inspiration for writing, her research process and how she honours real life human stories when creating fiction. Her novels, The Bone Sparrow, The Ones that Disappeared, Wisp: A Story of Hope and Lost Soul Atlas have won multiple awards including the ABIA Book of the Year for Older Children, the Readings Young Adult Book Prize and the Amnesty CILIP Honour. Her new book The Curiosities is inspired by people who see the world differently – and make it more wondrous. With themes of creativity, curiosity and neurodivergence, this is an essential book for every home, school and library.
Her words are a powerful reminder for us to raise our voices for change and that storytelling has the ability to inspire hope for a better future.
