National Year of Reading Ambassador

May 8th, 2012

I’m sure I’ve mentioned before that 2012 is Australia’s National Year of Reading, and that I’m one of the Tasmanian Ambassadors. Well, this week I’m one of the FEATURED Ambassadors. Have a look at the NYR website here, for my interview and photos (including one of me at age 11 with my horse Chief!).

      Thanks Lilli! I’m enjoying being Ambassador so far, being asked to do all sorts of nice things. Glad you like the picture!

    Dear Lian,
    When I looked on your Facebook page I saw you won the Awards for the City of Lies and I knew that they were going to win as the book is a bestseller and in 50 years time I bet they might make it into a classic !

    Hi Lian,

    I really like the last picture of you reading Museum of Thieves with a young student!

      Thanks Ellen. The girl, whose name is Jamila, is a total bookworm, just as I was at that age (and still am!). It’s so nice to meet kids who love books so much.
