August is a month of books

August is a month of books from National Bookshop Day to the CBCA Children’s Bookweek and the Melbourne Writers Festival. I’m looking¬†forward to all of it, especially the MWF: where there will be much sky-eating and ocean-drinking with two visiting Indian authors, Samhita Arni & Annie Zaidi along with ¬†many of the Australian contributors. Check out my upcoming events and come along to one or all!

The making and breaking of Australian writers and artists

The Australian government has announced changes to Arts funding that will make life harder for every Australian who enjoys books, film, theatre, music and art. http://kirstymurray.com/news/budgets-and-the-breaking-of-hearts/

The Year it All Ended – CBCA Notable Book 2015

The Year It All Ended has been honoured by the Children’s Book Council of Australia in their 2015 Book of the Year Awards. It’s been listed as a notable book in the Older Readers category. This is my seventh book to receive a CBCA notables listing – my lucky number! You can read the full list of 2015 Notable Books on the CBCA website.
