Dear Colleagues

Sadly, Australia has lost not one, but two members of the same family of writers. Writer Georgia Blain, daughter of broadcasters and activists Ellis Blain and Anne Deveson , has battled a brain tumour for more than a year. http://bit.ly/2hxjUUm

Her mother died just days later from the effects of Alzheimer’s Disease.

I had several of Georgia’s works on my library shelves, but it was her adult books that gained most acclaim. Her last work, Between a Wolf and a Dog is shortlisted for the Queensland Literary Award, the 2017 Indie Award and the 2017 Victorian Premier’s Award
