Booked Out would like to extend a huge congratulations to our speaker Morris Gleitzman, who has just been announced as the Australian Children’s Laureate for 2018-2019!
The Australian Children’s Laureate promotes the importance of reading, creativity and story in the lives of young Australians. Previous Laureates include Alison Lester, Boori Monty Pryor, and fellow Booked Out speaker Jackie French.
For over 30 years Morris Gleitzman’s books have dominated the shelves of children and young adults all over Australia and the world. His titles include Two Weeks With the Queen, Boy Overboard, Toad Rage, and the acclaimed ‘Felix’ series beginning with Once.
Congratulations, Morris – we can’t imagine a better ambassador for Australian children’s literature, and we wish you every success in this new role.
