Prime Minister’s Literary Awards 2023

Last night, I attended the Prime Minister’s Literary Awards and what a wonderful event it was!

The winner of the children’s category was ‘Open Your Heart to Country’ a picture book by Jasmine Seymour.

It was an honour to be there at the National Library of Australia to catch up with other authors and illustrators: Zeno Sworder, Johanna Bell, Ozge Sevalk, Mike Lucas and many more. Creative Australia did an amazing job putting together this event!

Signing a copy of ‘Zadie Ma and the Dog Who Chased the Moon’ to go in the National Archives.

It was lovely sharing this very special time with my son, Ren. Mike Lucas (who took this photo) must have said something very funny.

The dinner set up, the meal was delicious!
