Local Author John Marsden and Alice Pang: Writers speak to one another

It has come to my attention that local author and school principal John Marsden launched ALICE PUNG's latest novel Laurinda.

Pung’s latest book is about Marsden and the profound influence his young adult fiction had on her when she was a teenager growing up in the working-class suburb of Braybrook.

The two met at writers’ festivals over the years, and became friends two years ago.
