John Marsden is the author of titles including So Much to Tell You, Letters From the Inside, and the much celebrated Tomorrow series, adapted for film in 2010. From a childhood at a deeply conservative paramilitary school with strict standards and a culture of rugby and rowing, John developed a passion for reading, writing and education at an early age. So far has published fiction and non-fiction for children, young adults and adults and has founded the Candlebark School in Victoria.
John Marsden’s visit was a sensational experience for the kids. John was funny, engaging and had them hanging off his every word. Needless to say, every John Marsden book in the library was borrowed out the next day. It was really nice of him to give away copies of his books to the kids and stay back to sign them after the talk.
