Kate and Jol on the ABC

At Katejoltemple.com we're not afraid of a little trumpet blowing. TOOT! So when we got the offer to step into the booth at ABC Radio National and talk about Room On Our Rock with the sparkly Hamish Macdonald – that was a yes. And what fun we had! As it was Refugee Week, it came at a great time, giving us the chance to talk about the role fiction has to play in helping build empathy on big social issues. It's not often that children's literature gets national exposure and we're very grateful to have an ABC that makes it possible.
