I took my son to GOMA today and we wandered up to the Queensland Writers Centre in the State Library (and, can I just say that the GOMA, QAG, SLQ, Queensland Museum and QPAC precinct is so fabulous and so great for people with kids!). I was thrilled to see Max & George out on display in the Books From Our Backyard area. The Books From Our Backyard 2013 pamphlet is out now! I was happy to see Max & George on the first page…which was mainly by virtue of my last name being at the start of the alphabet and children’s books being early in the booklet.
The Books From Our Backyard 2013 booklet is available in hardcopy from the Queensland Writers Centre but you can also view it here as a pdf. The depth and breadth of books written by Queensland authors shows that there are many wonderfully creative voices in Queensland, a State that I am proud to call my adopted home.
Also, watch out for the ‘Queensland Author’ orange sticker at bookshops! Thanks QWC – great work!
