We were delighted to be able to hold Night of the Notables this year after it was cancelled due to COVID in 2020. The event was well attended. Fortunately, we were able to safely spread out through the Burnside Ballroom to enjoy drinks and nibbles. Five wonderful presenters – Nola Uzzell,
Katrina Germein, Julia Baldwin, Eileen McCabe and Kathryn Beilby entertained the audience with their expert opinions on the best of the Notables BOYA books. Each presenter chose a different category and prepared a slideshow to accompany her talk.
Attendees were also able to access these slide presentations after the event. Night of the Notables is a terrific way to help us learn about the best of Australian Children’s books and build interest in the CBCA Shortlist and CBCA Book Week.
We are extremely grateful to the Burnside Library staff for their support.
