To Dare To Fail

Bendigo Writers Festival

Event Date: 
15 May 2022
Author / Presenters: 
John Marsden, host Pam Snow

To roam, to dare, to fail. These are the rights of our children, says bestselling author of the Tomorrow series, and life-long educator, John Marsden. His sometimes controversial theories about what it takes to prepare a child for adulthood have been put to the test in the schools he’s created, and in this generous memoir, he discusses teaching, parenting and society as a whole. John will be in conversation with La Trobe University’s language and reading expert, Pamela Snow, about why children benefit from risk-taking and an adventurous life.

Tickets $20 full / $16 concession or multi-buy.
