The 2021 Aurealis Awards were presented at the Hellenic Club, Canberra Civic on Saturday night, 28th May. So very exciting to be mingling face-to-face again after a couple of years of online only events. Big thanks to Tehani, Jo, Nicole, Paula, Nathan, MC Craig & everyone else who made it happen. So much fun – photos here.
Thanks very much to Paperchain bookshop, Manuka and the fabulous Kaaron Warren for hosting the Canberra launch of Lotus Blue and Crossroads of Canopy last Thursday night.
Thank you to the many folks who turned up to the double launch of Thoraiya’s Crossroads of Canopy and my Lotus Blue at Kinokuniya last Thursday night – and to Galaxy bookshop on Saturday afternoon. Three cheers for Kate Forsyth and Margo Lanagan for doing the honours!
