The Outer Sanctum


5th Quarter | Felice Arena

This week Nicole catches up with Felice Arena, bestselling author of the popular Specky Magee kids’ books. Specky is turning twenty and to celebrate, a 20th Anniversary edition has been released along with Felice’s brand new kids’ book, The Unstoppable Flying Flanagan – about the adventures of a young girl who loves her footy, even though it’s war time 1942, and girls aren’t allowed to play.

We acknowledge the Traditional Owners and Custodians of the lands on which we work, live, learn and play, and pay our respects to Indigenous Elders past and present. We recognise that sovereignty has never been ceded – that this always was and always will be Aboriginal land.
