Andy Griffiths

A celebration of self-expression

Join us for a creative conversation with one of Australia’s most popular children’s authors Andy Griffiths. We will hear about his inspirations, writing habits and favourite tricks for creating his award winning stories.

Andy and illustrator Terry Denton have collaborated on more than 33 bestselling books and their phenomenal, award-winning Treehouse series is published in more than 35 countries.

In Australia, Andy and Terry’s books have sold over 10 million copies and they have won 80 children’s choice awards and 10 Australian Book Industry Awards.

Andy is a passionate advocate for literacy and in 2015 was awarded the Dromkeen Medal to honour his outstanding contribution to Australian children’s literature. He is also an ambassador for both The Indigenous Literacy Foundation and the Pyjama Foundation.
