Description

Cowra Library is hosting a visit by bestselling Australian children’s author Morris Gleitzman at Cowra Civic Centre, Darling Street, on Thursday 13th September at 10.30am to 11.30am.

Morris wrote his first children’s novel in 1985. His moving and humorous style has endeared him to children and adults alike, and he is now one of Australia’s most successful authors, both internationally and at home. His books explore serious and sometimes confronting subjects in humorous and unexpected ways. His titles include Two Weeks With The Queen, Grace, Doubting Thomas, Bumface, Give Peas A Chance, Extra Time, Loyal Creatures, Snot Chocolate and the series Once, Then, Now, After, Soon and Maybe. Morris lives in Sydney and Brisbane, and his books are published in more than twenty countries.

Morris is now the Australian Children’s Laureate and will dedicate the next two years to advocating for the importance of stories and everything stories can offer. His theme is ‘Stories Create Our Future’. “Young people need stories more than ever. Stories to delight, stories to beguile, stories to inspire, stories to move deeply. And through these experiences, stories that equip young readers to embrace an often dark and uncertain world with optimism, resolve and creativity.”
