CBCA Middle Grade Fiction panel

Readings Hawthorn — 701 Glenferrie Rd, Hawthorn, Victoria, 3122

The Victorian Branch of the Children’s Book Council of Australia (CBCA Vic) invites you to join them for a panel celebrating the shortlist announcement of the 2018 Book of the Year awards.

Middle grade fiction has seen a recent surge in popularity, and Australia has contributed by producing some bestselling stories for the age group. The panel will discuss their experiences writing for the demographic, their advice for catching the attention of middle-grade readers, and the latest book releases.

The panel will include authors Leanne Hall (Iris and the Tiger), Sue Whiting (Missing) and Nova Weetman (The Secrets We Keep), and will be chaired by school librarian and author Karys McEwen.

Refreshments will be provided.

Free, but please book here.
