Wendy Orr

With a string of awards and accolades, including the Prime Minister’s Award for Children’s Literature, Wendy Orr has written over 40 books for children, teenagers and adults and been published in 29 languages.

She has appeared on some of the biggest conference stages and was the first Australian author to have a children’s book adapted for a Hollywood feature film – Nim’s Island, starring Jodie Foster, who was passionate about the book because it had turned her son into a reader. The sequel was also made into an Australian movie starring Bindi Irwin.

Wendy’s latest book is Swallow’s Dance, a Bronze Age novel in free verse and prose, which was recently named a USSBY Outstanding International Book.

Wendy believes that every child deserves to find the books that fuel their passion for stories, encourage empathy and connection and empower them for the future.
