In recognition of Christobel Mattingley's contribution to children's literature, the CBCA aims to raise $5000 so that her name can be listed as a Major Donor, in memoriam, to the CBCA Awards Foundation. This Foundation contributes to funding prizes for the annual CBCA Book of the Year Awards.
Entries for the 2020 CBCA Book of the Year Awards close on 30 November.
We are excited to announce the theme for CBCA Book Week 2020!
Established in 1945, the Children's Book Council of Australia (CBCA) is a not-for-profit, volunteer run organisation which aims to engage the community with literature for young Australians.
The CBCA presents annual awards to books of literary merit, for outstanding contribution to Australian children's literature.
