First Australian Children’s Laureates Announced

Drum roll….they are: Alison Lester and Boori Monty Pryor! More about the award, the new laureates, and more here.  Congratulations to all!  (Now we in the States have to wait with bated breath for the person who will be taking Katherine Paterson’s spot as our National Ambassador for Children’s Literature— to be announced January 3rd by the Librarian of Congress, James Billington.)
