The winners for the Indie Awards (a unique award recognising and rewarding the best Australian writing as chosen by Australian Independent Booksellers) was announced today.
If you need inspiration or suggestions for book purchases, then these are lists to consider.
It is also interesting to read the responses of award winners and how these awards affect/inspire their writing journeys.
“Winning the Indie Book Awards in the Young Adult Category is such an incredible honour. The book industry is so indebted to the brilliance and passion of independent booksellers, so to be recognised by these the cornerstones of the industry, it’s really a dream come true. Thank you so much to all the booksellers from the bottom of my heart for championing THE SURPRISING POWER A GOOD DUMPLING.” —The Surprising Power of a Good Dumpling by Wai Chim (Allen and Unwin Children’s)
# With some bookshops offering (free) delivery to homes at this time of social distancing, why not get a few of these titles in at home?
