      ALEA members will be saddened to learn of the passing of our much loved, highly esteemed colleague Dr Maurice Saxby AM recently, just a few weeks before his 90th birthday. Maurie's contribution to the field of children’s literature, both in Australia’s and internationally was renowned. He was a generous friend and mentor to many teachers, teacher educators, authors and illustrators and will be sadly missed. A life well lived. 

      A celebration of Maurie's life will be held in the Great Hall at the University of Sydney on Monday 19 January 2015 from 5-7pm. Organisers have asked that you book via the link on the flier here.
