Multi-talented author, Susanne Gervay OAM works tirelessly to support children’s authors and illustrators. Last week she was in overdrive facilitating the Sydney SCBWI Conference.
Susanne does so much for the children’s writing community in so many ways. This is a thank you shout-out to her, Deb Abela, Marjorie Crosby-Fairall and all the others who worked hard to make the SCBWI conference such a success.
Susanne writes across genres and is best known for her award-winning I am Jack series. These stories have been life-changing for children across the world who, like central character Jack, must find ways to cope with bullies.
My favourite Susanne Gervay book is the beautiful, wise and gentle Elephants have Wings. Her powerful YA titles; The Cave (the story of young men on a survival camp) and Butterflies are both books about courage. More fabulous titles can be found on Susanne’s website.
Thank you, Susanne for all you do to support children’s literacy. You are an inspiration.
