Congratulations CBCA Book of the Year Award Winners!
A wonderful Book Award announcement was held on Friday at the State Library of Queensland, hosted by CBCA Qld Branch. Creators and publishers were very excited to hear the announcement of the winners and honour books. The CBCA then hosted a dinner at the Greek Club, which was also a lot of fun. Thanks CBCA!
