Lighthouse Girl by author Dianne Wolfer and illustrator Brian Simmonds has been short listed for a New South Wales Premier’s History Award worth $15,000. It was one of four books to make the short list for the Young People’s History Prize.
The publisher of Boans for Service by David Hough has exhausted its stocks again. A third reprint is currently under consideration. The first print run sold out in 17 days and the second in less than four weeks. A limited number of bookstores in Perth still have copies for those who are quick! Fremantle Press is the book’s distributor.
How long did you know Peter? What was he like to work with as a colleague?
I knew Peter from 1968, when I returned to Perth from Oxford, until his death in 2002. I enjoyed many things about Peter, especially his wide reading and his quiet, ironic sense of humour.
