The Australian Indie Awards have been announced by the Independent Booksellers Association:
I’ll update this when I find out who won what in the other categories.
Thanks to Narelle from the ANZ LitLovers bookgroup for alerting me to the news!
Worse Things Happen at Sea: Tales of Life, Love, Family and the Everyday Beauty in Between by William McInnes and Sarah Watt has won the non-fiction category, and The Little Refugee by Anh and Suzanne Do – and illustrated by one of Australia’s best, Bruce Whatley - has won the children’s book category. (I do a unit of work on Whatley’s books with the Preps every year.)
