This afternoon after visiting SCIS Pudong, I dropped into my favourite restaurant in Shanghai, M on the Bund, which also happens to host the Shanghai International Literary Festival every year! It was lovely to catch up with my friends Bruno Van Der Burg (general manager) above and Tina Kanagaratnam, writer and CEO of AsiaMedia, as well as co-founder of the Literary Festival, below, who kindly fed me dinner! Mums and Dads – make sure you book your kids in to all the Kids’ Events at the next Festival in November, and book yourselves into the fabulous adult events – they’re a must for anyone interested in books and culture in Shanghai!


A Fabulous Frolic at SCIS Pudong!

Today was such a fabulous frolic with all the sparky kids, dedicated teachers and lovely teacher librarian Karen Danesi (above) at Shanghai Community International School, Pudong! The feisty Grade 4s learned How to Write a Riveting Story; the fantastic Grade 5s learned How to Publish Your Own Book, the thinkers in Grade 3 learned all about why Books are a Writer’s Best Friend, and then the terrific Grade 2s, Grade 1s and Kindies heard my Tale of Rodney Ram and asked some very interesting questions! And I signed lots and lots of lovely books! Just my kind of day! Thank you Karen, and all the team at SCIS, for hosting me today, and making me feel like a Film Star!
