Despite a challenging lockdown, our speakers have been busier than ever! With planners bursting at the seams, our speakers are taking COVID-19 in their stride, and we can’t be more excited about what’s to come.

Firstly, we’re still raving about Danielle Binks’ new middle-years title, The Year The Maps Changed. With incredibly believable characters and a well-written story, it’s a book made all the more enjoyable by it’s all too familiar setting (post-iso trip to Mornington or Sorrento, anyone?). With glowing reviews from our friends aged 10-12, we’re not surprised it’s been very successful.

The clever and creative Trace Balla is also back with a new title, The Heart of the Bubble: A Story With 2020 Vision Set in the Time of Corona. As a very timely and comforting story, we are also loving Trace’s much-needed inclusion of first nations peoples, messages of resilience and kindness to each other during these tricky times.

Mark Carthew has also been interviewed by the fantastic Weekend Notes, talking all things writing and life in isolation. Click here to read all about what Mark’s been working on, including an exciting overview of his next picture book to be released – The Thing that Goes Ping! We can’t wait.
