#About the event
Duration: 60 minutes
What happens when a city kid moves to a country town in the middle of nowhere? Find out how Oliver P got inspired to write his latest book, and why being different can make a difference. Discover how Oliver gets his ideas for stories, drawing from his experiences as a teacher, touring author and more recently an author Youtuber who loves his sneakers and games.
