Double book launch: Isobelle Carmody and Paul Collins

Paul Collins and Isobelle Carmody

This event is now in the past.

Join us at a very special event to launch new release works from two of Australia's best young adult authors.

From Paul Collins comes Rich and Rare, a blockbuster anthology of Australian short stories, poetry and artwork. Rich and Rare includes nearly 50 contributions from Australia’s leading creators for children and young adults, including Shaun Tan, Kerry Greenwood, Leigh Hobbs, Sofie Laguna, James Roy and Gabrielle Wang.

We will also be launching a new edition of Alyzon Whitestarr, Isobelle Carmody’s bestselling young adult novel. Isobelle is a prolific writer of fantasy and young adult fiction, and was recently voted Australia’s Favourite Author for 2016!

Bring your children and students along to discover these wonderful works of fiction. At the launch you can enjoy light refreshments on the Queensland Terrace as you mingle with the authors and other contributing writers, such as Michael Gerard Bauer, Meredith Costain, and James Moloney.

Both titles and more will be available for purchase on the night. Find other books related to this event in the SLQ Shop.
