"Brilliant, engaging, captivating and inspiring are just some of the  ways I would describe Felice's sessions. His energy is infectious and it's not just the students who enjoy themselves. Do yourself a favour and book Felice in at your school or library - you certainly won't be disappointed!"
- Sharmaine Delagardo, Griffith City Library

Felice Arena is a hugely popular speaker at schools and festivals in Australia and abroad. 

His entertaining and informative presentations are high-energy sessions that incorporate interactive theatre improvisations. Drawing on his acting and teaching experience Felice employs performance-based activities with the aim of bringing his stories to life and jump-starting a lifelong love of reading.

Felice has also been an entertaining guest at many of the premier Australian literature festivals, including the Sydney, Melbourne, Adelaide, and Perth Writers' Festivals, the Somerset Literature Festival, Byron Writers' Festial, Scotch College Literature Festival, Voices On the Coast, Write Around the Murray, and All Saints Literature Festival -- just to name a few!


Felice’s presentations are ideal for primary school audiences, large or small, depending on the venue and availability of audio-visual equipment. 


Sessions can be broken into the following Grade levels:

• Junior sessions (Grades P-2) - featuring Felice's joyous and bestselling 'PASTA!' picture book, an interactive The Besties read-aloud/performance, a drawing workshop - and even a

Sporty Kids Swimming dance!

Seniors (Grades 3 - 6 or 3/4s or 5/6s) - featuring Felice's acclaimed historical novels The Boy and The Spy, Fearless Frederic, and The Unstoppable Flying Flanagan - and the stories and research behind the stories. Writing tips and advice. Plus an interactive audience-driven celebration of the much-loved Specky Magee series.
