Shockingly Good Stories

Mon 6 Sep, 1.15pm
Melbourne Convention and Exhibition Centre, Goldfields Theatre

RA Spratt knows a thing or two about storytelling—not only is she a performer, podcast host, and television writer, she’s also the prolific author of the riveting Nanny Piggins books, the Friday Barnes mysteries, and the Peski Kids series.

Her latest book Shockingly Good Stories  gathers together tales designed to spread laughs, smiles and silliness—be prepared for high-energy, action-packed, laugh-out-loud fun as Spratt uses her latest work to lift the lid on what makes a great story.
