Winners of the fifth annual Prime Minister’s Literary Awards were announced today. The awards, ‘celebrate the contribution of Australian literature and history to the nation’s cultural and intellectual life’.

There are six categories – Fiction, Non-Fiction, Australian History, Young Adult Fiction, Children’s Fiction, and a Poetry award – the winners were selected from shortlists of five works in each category

The winners we are of course interested in are:

Young adult fiction – When We Were Two by Robert Newton  (Penguin)

Children’s fiction – Goodnight, Mice! By Frances Watts, illustrated by Judy Watson (Harper Collins)

It goes without saying that all other winners deserve big congratulations as do all short listed authors.
