I have just attended three days of the Reading Matters Conference sponsored by the Centre for Youth Literature of the State Library of Victoria. What a great three days! The students thoroughly enjoyed hearing from John Green, M.T.Anderson and Bernard Beckett on the student day. A special treat was seeing former Woodleigh student Nick Donaldson performing in re-enactments of scsnes from Green’s “Paper Towns’, and Beckett’s ‘Genesis’. Nick did a fantastic job of bringing the characters to life.
