Yet another honour for our wonderful RA Susanne Gervay! This time it's the
Society of Women Writers Biennial Children's Book Award 2016
for her evergreen favourite Being Jack
Illustrated by Cathy Wilcox
Published by Harper Collins Australia, in paperback
For ages 9 - 12
Jack is an 'everyman' - funny, loving and courageous, like all kids. Being Jack challenges kids and adults to think about bullying, family and relationships - and who they are. It makes kids laugh, but also encourages an exploration of ethics that helps them understand their world.
The Society of Women Writers is the oldest women's literary association in Australia, established by our beloved authors Ethel Turner, Dorothea MacKellar and Dame Mary Gilmore.
Richly deserved - go Susanne!
