First Event of the Year: Beach Day!

Saturday, January 13th, 1pm at St Kilda Esplanade

Hey everyone!
Who wants to kick off our 2021 by going to the beach with friends? You do!
We will be meeting at St Kilda beach at 1pm (weather and covid restrictions permitting), and having a great time on the 13th of February!

Remember to bring plenty of water and be sun-smart, and feel free to bring along something to sit on, sports equipment, and bathers! There is plenty of public transport around St Kilda, but if you need a lift let us know and we will organise a car pool.
Looking forward to seeing you all there!

If you are Driving: There are some paid parking locally but there also some side streets that have available spots. This website might give you a bit of a guide.
If you are taking Public Transport: St Kilda beach is pretty accessible via bus, train or tram. Don't forget that we will be doing pick-ups from nearby stations or locations so just let us know at 0401978192 and we can sort our best options.

Haven't been to a MK Network VIC event before? 
The aim of this group is to provide a community for MKs finishing high school and those in their early twenties. Our first event of the year is a great one to come along and meet people! We love seeing new faces and connecting with you, so please come join us :D

Book Review Spot

Our Book Review Spot is back!

We are excited to welcome Melanie Hilton, as our second MK book reviewer, to share about a book suitable for teens & up.

Do you have a book that you have always carried with your wherever you go? We are always on the look out for good suggestions to share so drop us a line!

The Green Rider by Kristen Britain

'One of my favourite books of all time is The Green Rider by Kristen Britain. The story is about a girl called Karigan who ditches school after a being expelled for dueling the son of a wealthy merchant. She meets a Green Rider—a member of a group that does odd jobs for their king including carrying messages—who has been fatally shot. He gets her to promise to take a message to the king.

What struck me most about the story as a whole was how unwilling Karigan was to accept that she was the right person for the job, and that she’d been at the right place at the right time to help protect the country she lived in. I also enjoyed the story because Kristen did a really good job of portraying the conflict Karigan has over knowing what must be done and wishing she was free to pursue adventure at her own pace.'

The Contributer Bio

Hi! I’m Melanie Hilton. I grew up in Quelimane, Mozambique where my dad worked as an agronomist with World Vision International. My mum spent her time teaching my brothers and I at home because the local Portuguese school was full, and—as a result—she did a lot of research (somehow) on different tools she could use to progress the four of us through primary school.
Every year around June and July, the whole family would visit either my dad’s family in the US or my mother’s family in Australia. I’ve been living in Melbourne, Australia for ten years now and I am currently studying a Bachelors of Creative Writing at Deakin’s Burwood campus and working at Costco in Docklands.
