EVENT: Where’s OzYA going right, and where’s it going wrong?

I am beyond thrilled to be taking part in a Reading Bookstore event that's all about Aussie YA (I might have a thing or two to say on this topic!). 

WHERE: Readings Hawthorn — 701 Glenferrie Rd, Hawthorn, Victoria, 3122 
WHEN: Tue 14 Jul 2015 at 6:30pm 
COST: free!!!!  

The editor, the author, the librarian and the blogger – Where’s OzYA going right, and where’s it going wrong?
Join us and Melbourne literary journal Kill Your Darlings for a lively discussion about young adult fiction in Australia: Who’s reading it, and why? Are there enough diverse voices? How can we all do it better?
Marisa Pintado (commissioning YA editor for Hardie Grant Egmont), Melissa Keil (inaugural Ampersand Project-winning author), Susan La Marca (Head of Library and Information Services at Genazzano FCJ College) and Danielle Binks (reviewer and blogger at Alpha Reader) will chat about how they view the current state of OzYA in their respective fields, as well as answer questions from teens. The panel will be chaired by St Kilda bookseller Isobel Moore.
Readers, bloggers, writers, teachers, publishers, reviewers, enthusiasts all welcome.
