Learn about the mysterious animal at the centre of Michelle Kadarusman’s new middle grade novel, Music for Tigers. The thylacine, more commonly known as the Tasmanian tiger, was a dog like marsupial with dark tiger stripes across its back. It was Australia’s largest carnivorous marsupial before it was hunted into extinction over eighty years ago. But is the Tasmanian tiger really extinct? Michelle will talk about recent reported sightings of the Tasmanian tiger and the inspiration behind her story.

A take-away activity will include a chance to win a signed copy of the book.

Learning themes: Extinction, conservation, cryptid species, Australian geography and history
