This episode, Liz shouts out to a campaign initiated by two of our favourite creators, Emily Gale and Nova Weetman. They're petitioning Steve Dimopoulos, the Victorian Minister for Creative Industries to add a children’s book category to the Victorian Premier’s Literary Awards. There are already categories for Fiction, Non-Fiction, Drama, Poetry, Indigenous Writing and YA, but nothing for people writing or illustrating books for kids aged 12 and under and Emily and Nova are keen to change that. .
If you’d like to get involved, support Emily Gale by following her on twitter: @emilygale and sharing posts, or drop a line to Steve Dimopoulos so he knows how important this is.
On Kate's radar is a new paperback edition of Dear Grandpa, which is out this month, sporting a brand new cover designed by Julia Eim and Sandra Nobes, and featuring illustrations from the uber-talented Ronojoy Ghosh.
Dear Grandpa tells the story of Henry, who lives 2003 kilometres from his grandpa. That's longer than all the world's blue whales placed end to end and as uncatchable as a goodnight kiss on a shooting star.
Perfect for Father's Day, especially for families separated by distance.
