John Marsden – The Art of Growing Up
John Marsden is arguably Australia’s foremost writer of Young Adult fiction.
In his new book, The Art of Growing Up, John pulls together all he has learned from over thirty years’ experience working with and writing for young people. He shares his insights into everything – from the role of schools and the importance of education, to problem parents and problem children, and the conundrum of what it means to grow up and be ‘happy’ in the 21st century.
John spoke to Gareth Parker saying he decided to write this non-fiction book because “he got more and more concerned about where young people were heading.”
