Forget Queensland Day on June 6, I’ll be celebrating QUEENSLAND WEEK up at the Townsville Literary Festival from 4 to 10 June.

Looking forward to catching up with a brilliant line-up of Queensland authors and illustrators including Matthew Condon, Lucia Masciullo,  James Moloney and Kerry Brown.

You can click here for the complete program.

Or, if you really want to back a Queenslander, join The Big Read and vote for the children’s books that best define the Sunshine State.

The competition is being run by Book Links – Qld as part of the National Year of Reading 2012. (Very chuffed that Dust and Henry Hoey Hobson both got a guernsey on the shortlist. :))

All you have to do is click on this link and cast your vote for the children’s and YA books that you think best define Queensland. Voting closes 31 July 2012.
