It’s an understatement to say how enthusiastic we are about the work of our authors. From new releases to stage adaptations, we’re always thrilled to see familiar names and faces in the news, and are never surprised to see our speakers kicking goals.
In particular, the new release of When We Say Black Lives Matter by Maxine Beneba Clarke has struck a chord in our office. Written and illustrated by Maxine, this is a terrific triumph in creating a beautiful and critical work to start educating young ones early about the impact of racism. We’re rapidly buying up copies to give for Christmas, and spread Maxine’s important message for kids 3 and up.
Excitingly, Alice Pung’s excellent 2014 YA novel, Laurinda, will be on stage! Adapted by the Melbourne Theatre Company, Laurinda will be adapted by the writer and comedian Diana Nguyen, and directed by Petra Kalive. We can’t be more excited about this news, and look forward to seeing Lucy Lam in the big lights. Click here to read more.
