John Marsden: The Art of Growing Up

  • The Wheeler Centre 176 Little Lonsdale Street Melbourne, VIC, 3000 Australia (map)

John Marsden has long been part of the lives of young Australians. He is the author of over 40 books, including the perennially popular Tomorrow series. But he is also an experienced educator, and the founder and principal of the Candlebark and Alice Miller schools.

Joined in conversation by 15-year-old student Sumeya Yussuf, and hosted by school librarian Karys McEwen, Marsden will discuss the lives of young people in the 21st century, what it means to let kids be kids, and how effective education can offer them room to thrive.
