One interesting thing that’s happened since The Deep Enders was published is I’ve been spending an inordinate amount of time hanging out with teachers and librarians, who I’m now convinced are some of the best people going around! I guess it shouldn’t come as a surprise that librarians really, really like books, and by association, they’re quite friendly to authors as well (even knock-about ones like me).
A great teacher and friend Mat Green (imanewteacher) has been working hard to create teaching resources based on The Deep Enders, taking in the attack on Pearl Harbor, the 1942 bombings of Darwin and Broome, as well as the treatment of indigenous people during this period.
The Stage 4 & Stage 3 Units for the English Curriculum are now available FREE for teachers here: TEACHING RESOURCES
If you’re a teacher, librarian (or you know one) make the most of these excellent resources … with the 75th anniversary of Pearl Harbor, Darwin and Broome all coming in the next 6 months, it’s a great time to engage your students with these world-changing events and the issues surrounding them.
The Deep Enders is now available at: Berkelouw Bookstores, Gleebooks and online through Amazon, iBooks, Kobo & this website shop. Librarians can order through James Bennett, ALS, DLS, Westbooks, SoundTextMedia, Julian Wood & Peterpal.
