Andy Griffiths, John Marsden in the blogosphere

September 13, 2010

Tye Cattanach, librarian at Manor Lakes College, has blogged about the Andy event she hosted as part of The Very Bad Book Tour. A short extract:

It goes without saying that Andy Griffiths is an absolute ROCKSTAR and a very nice man!

For over an hour Andy had 670 children and their grownups and teachers in stitches and hanging on his every word.

Read Tye’s full post here – includes photos of the event! Andy is still on tour, heading to Perth tomorrow to do events at Campbell Primary School in Canning Vale and Christ Church Grammar in Claremont.

Meanwhile, John Marsden has written about his appearance at the Nambucca Heads Film Festival for National Film & Sound Archive. The NFSA booked John through us to accompany their screening of Tomorrow When the War Began, which opened the festival. John writes:

We walked into a highly-charged totally-positive vibe at the sold-out Nambucca Heads Cinema and I signed books till I could barely remember how to spell my name.

John’s full post is here. In addition to local schools here in Australia we’re very excited to be sending John to Malaysia later this month, where he’ll be speaking to staff and students at a number of International schools.
