We love this time of year. The time of year when the CBCA releases its list of best and brightest in Australian Young Adult and Junior fiction and informative works. Entrants must be Australian citizens and must have published the work within the last two years. Around your area libraries will be hosting events to celebrate Book Week, which is the time of year the winners of this annual competition are announced.
The winners of the 2016 CBCA Book Of The Year are available to borrow from your local library following book week.
