Deep Trouble: That Was Then This Is Now
That Was Then, This Is Now involved young adults and award winning writers (and a publisher!) coming together on stage to discuss much loved modern classics that have made an impact on them. Produced in partnership with the Castlemaine Children’s Literature Festival and Castlemaine Library, this event featured Robyn Annear and Cohen Saunders (The Outsiders by S.E. Hinton), Ellie Marney and Rosa Carrington (A Wrinkle in Time by Madeleine L’Engle), Cate Kennedy and Abigail Meadows (To Kill A Mockingbird by Harper Lee), Gryffin Winsor and Kristin Gill (The Hobbit by J.R.R. Tolkien)
The event took place on 7 November 2018, in the Phee Broadway Theatre, Castlemaine, initiated and produced by Lisa D’Onofrio.
This Event was supported by the Regional Centre for Culture Program, a Victorian Government initiative in partnership with the Dja Dja Wurrung Clans Aboriginal Corporation and Mount Alexander Shire, and a Mount Alexander Shire Community Grant.
