What: The Peninsula Writers’ Club will present award-winning author of books for young people George Ivanoff.
George is a Melbourne author who has written more than 100 books for kids and teens, including school readers, non-fiction books, chapter books and novels. He is best known for the You Choose series, the RFDS Adventures and the Gamers trilogy.
As a child, George loved reading interactive books, where he got to make decisions about the direction of the story. He has had more fun plotting and writing the You Choose books than pretty much anything else. And writing the RFDS Adventures has opened his eyes to the amazing work done by the Royal Flying Doctor Service.
George is thrilled that You Choose: The Treasure of Dead Man’s Cove won the 2015 YABBA for Fiction for Younger Readers, and that You Choose: Alien Invaders From Beyond the Stars has been nominated this year. George drinks too much coffee, eats too much chocolate and watches too much Doctor Who.
We are thrilled that George can join us to share his writing journey, and we promise to keep his coffee cup full after his dinner talk at Cakes and Ale.
You can check out his website at georgeivanoff.com.au and then you can come along and check him out in the real, live writing flesh! George will also be meeting local school children to talk books and writing.
When: Tuesday 4 October, 2016 from 6:30pm to Cakes and Ale in Sorrento
