Shelf Ready

ALS Readers Recommend

ALS staff, friends, and family have thought back to what we’ve read, watched and listened to so far this year and present this list of books, audiobooks, music and dvds that we’d recommend. To read why some of them made the list, see this month’s newsletter!

REAL Awards shortlist

The titles in the Read and Enjoy Australian Literature Award shortlist are nominated by Austrailan children and the shortlist is used to select the winners in the forthcoming KOALA (NSW), YABBA (VIC), and KROC (NT) Awards. Unusually for awards, the nominees do not have to be recent releases, just books that children currently enjoy reading.

ALS' "ALIA Conference without the Conference"

Since the ALIA Conference was cancelled due to COVID-19, Simon and Angela present book proofs at a virtual, socially-distanced stand! Watch here.
