We are very excited to have Adrian Beck visit our school in July to talk to students in years 1-6.
Adrian Beck writes funny, action-packed adventure stories for kids. Adrian is the author of the Alien Zoo series and the co-author of the best-selling kids’ series Kick it to Nick, with AFL Hall of Fame inductee Shane Crawford. He has also written Stuff Happens – Dale. All of Adrian’s stories are fun to read – even for kids who struggle to get interested in books.
His latest series of books – Champion Charlies ‘The Mix-Up’ and ‘Boot It’ have been developed in partnership with the Football Federation Australia to coincide with the 2018 Soccer World Cup.
Adrian can be found interviewing fellow authors on YouTube in his Adrian Becks Author Hangout series – follow the links on his website http://adrianbeck.com.au to see him interview Felice Arena, Sally Rippin, Tristan Bancks, Tim Harris and others.
Besides being an author Adrian is also a part-time TV producer having worked on The Footy Show, The Logie Awards, Prank Patrol and Kids’ WB. He uses the skills from both parts of his busy life to deliver entertaining school visits with lively, humorous and interactive sessions on writing, working in television and sport.
Our book supplier, Lamont Books, is offering our students the chance to pre-purchase Champion Charlies and Alien Zoo books so that Adrian can autograph them when he visits. Order forms are being sent home today and need to be returned by 9am Tuesday 26 June at the latest to ensure delivery to school in time for Adrian’s visit.
