CBCA Night of Notables


Last week, three Booked Out agents were thrilled to attend the CBCA Night of Notables, to get in on the latest action from the Children’s Book Council of Australia (VIC).

The evening was kicked off by Sarah Mayer Cox, primary school teacher and Lecturer in Education at LaTrobe University, who took us through the evolution of Book Week in Victoria, with some hilarious Book Week stories from her time as a primary teacher. We then heard from passionate creatives Demet Divaroren and Adam Wallace, who gave us some insight into the artists’ perspective and how they keep inspired.

The most exciting moment of the evening was, of course, the announcement of the CBCA Notable Titles for 2018 – and we were so excited to see so many Booked Out speakers on the list. Click through to see this year’s selection – the judges have some tough choices ahead of them!

Thank you to the CBCA for a wonderful evening celebrating the importance of Australian children’s and YA literature.
