Ray Mathew Lecture 2019: Stories Create Our Future with Morris Gleitzman

Classes, Lessons, Workshops and Talks

14 Nov 2019

Morris Gleitzman outlines why young people need stories now more than ever. Stories to delight, stories to beguile, stories to inspire, stories to move deeply. And through these experiences, stories that equip young readers to embrace an often dark and uncertain world with optimism, resolve and creativity.

Stories have always been at the centre of our discourse. They help us explore what is it to be human, and what might be possible in our lives. Our young people face many challenges in the decades ahead as they explore what is possible for our human enterprise. Central among the things that will help equip them for this journey are stories.
