On 9th January I was thrilled to be part of a special advance screening of the movie The Book Thief at the Golden Age Cinema in Surry Hills. The night was a fund raiser for the Sydney Story Factory in Redfern. We got to meet Marcus Zusak. He signed a collector edition of the book and after the movie we had a Q and A session with him.
It was so interesting to hear about how he wrote the book and his impressions of the movie. I’m proud of him. It’s nice to see an Australian author receiving such high acclaim. He is also a strong supporter of the Story Factory. Good stuff!
