Reading Matters 2015 is hitting the road!

For the very first time, Reading Matters  will be travelling to four states as part of our celebration of young adult fiction. We have been working with fantastic partners to ensure that teens in regional and metropolitan schools around the country have the opportunity to meet YA writers.  Over four days, eight writers will speak to teens at sixteen schools in regional South Australia and Victoria, Alice Springs and Brisbane.

We also have a number of public events for YA readers of the ‘old teen’ persuasion to join in the festivities.
