Please come along if you are in the area. These are the sort of events that I love doing best so it was a sort of yes! straight away when I was asked. I will obviously be speaking about Alibrandi, but also the Jellicoe script which is done and dusted and waiting patiently.

Here is the QWC’s  blurb for the event.

Have a book that is made for the screen? Explore how to adapt another property for the screen in this exclusive Cairns event featuring the award-winning author and screenwriter Melina Marchetta.

Melina Marchetta is the writer of eight novels including The Piper’s Son, longlisted for the Miles Franklin Award.  She is the scriptwriter of Looking For Alibrandi, based on her novel which won an AFI Award, NSW Premier’s Award, IF award and Critics Circle Award for Best Screenplay.  She has written for  the ABC’s Dance Academy and has completed the adaptation of her novel On the Jellicoe Road.
