Reading Matters

Teens love storytelling: it takes them on flights of imagination from familiar places to fantastical realms. Reading Matters is dedicated to storytelling for young people.

In 2015, the 11th biennial Reading Matters brought together a sparkling array of YA authors, illustrators and publishers to discuss, debate and celebrate books for young adults. The 2015 program featured a two-day conference, plus one-day student and public day programs held at State Library Victoria.
