Congratulations to NewSouth Publishing on winning the Small Publisher’s Adult Book category at the 2015 Australian Book Industry Awards.
Bob Carr is currently travelling overseas but his publisher Phillipa McGuinness accepted the award on his behalf saying:
‘The diary format may have been dull in someone else’s hands, but with reflections on everything from ALP fundraisers across the nation, the rise of a kid from the sandhills of Matraville, the agony of having the job of his dreams in a government that he knew would be short-lived, Diary of a Foreign Minister is anything but boring.’
Congratulations to the three NewSouth and UNSW Press authors shortlisted for the 2015 NSW Premier's Literary Awards!
