Good Afternoon CYL loyalists!
We’re knee deep into planning our next Booktalkers event. It’s all Middle Years, all the time. So, what’s on the program?
Kate Constable will be on the panel talking about her recently shortlisted title, Crow Country, on the WA Premier’s Award. Crow Country was also shortlisted on the 2012 CBCA for Younger Readers and shortlisted for the Adelaide Festival Awards for Literature (Children’s Literature). She is also one of the authors in Allen & Unwin’s Girlfriend Fiction series
Aurealis winner, Tom Taylor, will be talking graphic novels and The Deep: Here be Dragons. He is best known for his Star Wars graphic novels for Lucasfilm and Dark Horse comics, including the critically acclaimed Star Wars: Blood Ties series and Star Wars: Invasion. He has written in the Batman and Green Lantern series for DC comics. Tom was also our Writer-In-Residence over at Inside A Dog last month.
Author and Illustrator Gabrielle Wang is not only this month’s Writer-In-Residence over at Inside A Dog, but a former winner of the Aurealis Awards herself. She has also been shortlisted for QLD Premier’s Award, a CBCA Notable and has been ‘highly commended’ on the Prime Minister’s Literary Awards.
We hope you can make it down for what promises to be an exciting and rewarding night of YA book talk.
