Both Guthridge and Macalister library had the pleasure of having visiting Author Archie Fusillo visit our library on Monday 13th August. Archie had presence in the library captivating his audience, years 7, 8, 9 & 10. Archie's character and enthusiastic conversation engaged our students with his stories on life, had us in laughter and sadness.
Archie is a remarkable speaker having a positive affect on our students and teachers. Archie's titles include Sparring with Shadows (1997), The Dons 2001, Bruises (2004), The Last of the Braves (2009), and Dead Dog in the Still of the Night (2014).
