Laurie Copping Award Winner Annoucement

So thrilled that local Canberra author and illustrator, Tania McCartney was awarded the The Laurie Copping Award for Distinguished Service to Children’s Literature in the ACT.

Tania is a great supporter of reading, children's literature and other creators of literature. She was the founder of Kids Book Review and 52 Week Illustration Challenge. Tania gives her time in helping others with their craft from speaking at conference, presenting seminars and workshops to answering questions at Ask Tania. She loves talking to children about her stories and gives a great book launch with reading, craft and food. Now while you are thinking wow she does so much let me also point out that she was an ambassador for the national Year of Reading and is a current ambassador for the Chief Minister Reading Challenge in the ACT. 

Tania is a great example of an advocate for reading and children's literature. Congratulations!

Tania with Julie Long OAM (President of CBCA ACT Branch)
