Virtual author talk for your class: Lian Tanner


Lian Tanner

30 minutes

23 AUGUST 2024



Celebrate Book Week with this virtual author talk! Tune in with your students to hear from the brilliant Lian Tanner.

Lian Tanner has worked as a teacher, a tourist bus driver, a juggler, an editor and a professional actor. She has been dynamited while scuba diving and arrested while busking. She once spent a week in the jungles of Papua New Guinea, hunting for a Japanese soldier left over from the Second World War. It took her a while to realise that all of this was preparation for becoming a writer. And now she’s appearing for PETAA courtesy of our friends at Allen and Unwin to talk with your students! 

Lian’s books include the best-selling Keepers trilogy, the Hidden series, the Rogues trilogy, A Clue for Clara and Rita’s Revenge, picture book Ella and the Ocean (illustrated by Jonathan Bentley), and the whimsical fantasy Spellhound. Her books have been translated into eleven languages and won many awards, including two Aurealis Awards, a NSW Premier’s Literary Award, a Tasmanian Literary Award, a Davitt Award for Best Children’s Crime Novel, and the State Library of NSW’s Russell Prize for Humour Writing for Young People.

New releases in 2024 are Fledgewitch, the sequel to Spellhound, and When the Lights Went Out, a picture book illustrated by Jonathan Bentley.
