The ABIA has unfurled its yearly shortlists and, quite frankly, we’re catching our breath here at Text.
A stellar year of publishing has resulted in stellar representation across a whole host of categories. A massive congratulations goes out to all our authors and their shortlisted books below and a big thank you to all those who have made these books a success.
The winners will be announced at a gala ceremony hosted by Gretel Killeen in Sydney on Wednesday 30 June. The full list of categories and shortlists is attached and as you’ll see it is an amazingly strong year. The Australian publishing industry is in robust health.
