Sally Murphy OAM

“Reading is as important as breathing. Instead of air you inhale knowledge, empathy, adventure, learning, fun, and you exhale stress, ignorance and boredom.”

Sally Murphy OAM is a children’s author, poet and academic who is pretty sure she was born with a book in her hand and has rarely been without one since.  When she isn’t reading she is writing, speaking or teaching at a university, where she makes it her mission to ensure children have access to good books in or out of the classroom.
