The Book of the Year is coming!

Australia’s most influential children’s literary awards event, the CBCA Children’s Book of the Year Awards, is almost here.

Our tireless volunteer judges spent hundreds of hours collectively reading over 440 entries for the 2017 CBCA Book of the Year Awards. After careful deliberation they narrowed the entries down to a stellar Short List. Next they had the challenging task of selecting the Winner and Honour books.

The 2017 CBCA Book of the Year Winners will be announced at midday on Friday 18 August at an event hosted by the CBCA Tasmanian Branch at Government House Tasmania.

Stay tuned to our website and social media channels for the announcement!
