The Real World: Writing about teens in contemporary Sydney
Melina Marchetta in conversation with Sarah Ayoub, launching Sarah’s new novel, The Yearbook Committee!
From the much-loved author of Hate is Such a Strong Word comes a ‘smart, funny and relevant’ novel about five unlikely teammates who find themselves thrust together against their will…
The school captain. The newcomer. The loner. The popular girl. The politician’s daughter.
Can they find a way to make their final year a memorable one or will their differences tear their world apart?
6.00pm arrival for 6.30pm start.
