With so many wonderful Australian books being published each year it can be a very difficult choice. From the many titles nominated shortlists are generated in four categories; Fiction, Non-fiction, Debut fiction and Children’s. A winner from each category then become the finalists and the Australia wide vote takes place. I always feel happy about the book I vote for but guilty about the excellent books I don’t vote for!
The category winners this year were; The Street Sweeper – Elliot Perlman, Worst Things Happen at Sea – William McInnes, All That I Am – Anna Funder and The Little Refugee – Anh and Suzanne Do.
AND THE WINNER IS All That I Am. CONGRATULATIONS Anna Funder!
