Event Overview: The NSW Premier’s Reading Challenge and Dymocks Children’s Charities are pleased to present author David Metzenthen and illustrator Michael Camilleri discussing the creation of ‘One Minute's Silence’.
This powerful and moving story about the meaning of Remembrance Day, drawing on the ANZAC and Turkish battle at Gallipoli is shortlisted for the Children’s Book Council of Australia 2015 picture book of the year.
David and Michael will talk about finding good ideas for a story; researching, reading and talking to people who have real insight, work-shopping ideas at the right time; and relying on one’s self to make a story as good as it can be.
Students in Years 5-9 will have the opportunity to pose questions to David and Michael. Please submit your questions to firstname.lastname@example.org by Thursday 28 May, 2015. A reply email will be sent confirming selection.
