Read Watch Play June 2013 – Faraway


Join Parramatta Library as we participate in the Read Watch Play reading theme for June


What do you think of when you read far far away?

Does it take you back to reading fairy stories or does it make you think of other stories/histories which take place far far away?

Does it make you think of travel to places #faraway?

Or of science fiction, space travel and exploration?

Or is it of fantasy with creatures and ideas from #faraway?

What places seem #faraway to you? They may be countries or worlds away, or only a few blocks, suburbs or towns away?

What ideas are #faraway?  Are any of them coming closer?

How do you connect to people #faraway?  The twitter reading group is a great way to connect with people #faraway as you can discuss your reading, watching, playing with people anywhere in the world, simply by using #faraway (or the different tags for each month).

What children’s books take you #faraway?  There are lots of amazing graphic novels to take you #faraway?

While you are reading, playing or watching for #faraway, you might like to tweet about it using #faraway so that other people can have a conversation with you.

There will be a live twitter discussion on 25 June starting at 8.00pm Australian Eastern Standard Time.   9.00pm New Zealand  Time, 6.00pm Singapore Standard Time, 12.00 noon Central European Summer Time.  Note : this is a staggered start to the discussion.

Use the tags #faraway and #rwpchat as you discuss the reading, watching playing that is your experience of faraway, so others can join in the conversation too.
