If you listened closely on Monday night, you might have heard a cheer echoing in Prahran! We are thrilled to see our authors so strongly represented in the @cbca_vicBook of the Year notable longlist.
Fantastic talks from Fiona Wood, Jo Stanley and Alex Rance reminded us of how childhood reading sets important lifelong habits.
Fiona Wood summed up the night perfectly with her comment on the 2019 Book Week theme of ‘Reading is my Secret Power’. “Reading fosters empathy, and empathy will help us save the world.” – we couldn’t say it better ourselves.
