HE SAID, SHE ASKED, IT GROWLED!
You’ve got a great plot, wonderful descriptions of the setting, some fabulous characters…but what do they say to each other?! Are they funny? Haughty? Irritating?

3:30pm-4:30pm * Grades 5-7

Factory Talks – with Omar Musa!

We are thrilled to introduce our Factory Talks series. Once a month, an author will come by to talk about their work in a salon-style setting. You’ll be able to ask questions, and stay afterwards to discuss the book over wine and cheese with your fellow volunteers. Our favourite bookseller, Oscar & Friends, will be on hand so you can buy your own copy, and get the author to sign it too. The talks are free, and open to all volunteers and their friends.

RSVP to info@sydneystoryfactory.org.au. We look forward to seeing you there!

Mook Club

August selection: The Perks Of Being A Wallflower by Stephen Chbosky.

A small book club variation that focuses solely on books that have been turned into movies is bringing its meets to the Martian Embassy and you’re all invited! The idea is that you read the book during the month, then at the meet we all watch the film together and discuss both mediums. Past books have included Picnic At Hanging Rock, Where The Wild Things Are, Fight Club and more. Warning: copious snacks are consumed and excited exclamations and impromptu discussions are often made during the films. If you’d like to stay up to date with Mook Club happenings you can join the Facebook group.

Volunteer interview and orientation

Before tutoring at the Sydney Story Factory, all volunteers need to be interviewed and attend an orientation session. The interviews take approximately 15 minutes and you’ll be given a slot between 9am and noon. Then you can come to training between 12.30-3pm, where we run through how tutoring works and give you some tips on how to do it.
