The Indie Award is run by a group of Australian Independent booksellers, who choose the books they most enjoyed reading and selling in the previous calendar year. It is in it’s third year, and the short lists have just been announced.
There are four categories and one of them is children’s.
The Very Bad Book by Andy Griffiths.
The Legend of the Golden Snail by Graeme Base
Mirror by Jeannie Baker
Keepers #1: Museum of Thieves by Lian Tanner
The winners of each category are voted on by the member, and then an overall award winner is chosen.
Stay tuned for the announcements. It’s a great way to celebrate Australian writing and books.
