Author Visit to Telopea Park School

Michelle Morgan - Thursday, April 06, 2017

I had the pleasure of talking to Year 9 students at Telopea Park School in Canberra this morning about my new historical novel for young adults, Flying through Clouds.

They were a great audience and asked such interesting questions. I interspersed historical photographs in my presentation to give the students an idea of what it was like to grow up in Australia in the 1930s.

With heartfelt thanks to Year 9, Library staff, English teachers and my enthusiastic helpers from Narrabundah College!
