The 2016 West Australian Premier's Book Awards were announced last week, with three Victorian authors named among the winners.
Helen Garner was awarded the $25,000 Premier's Prize for her powerful rendering of the Farquharson murder trial, This House of Grief. The book also won the $15,000 prize for non-fiction.
A previous winner of the Victorian Premier's Literary Award for an Unpublished Manuscript, Miles Allinson took the $5000 People's Choice award for his novel, Fever of Animals.
Castlemaine-based author Glenda Millard was also honoured, winning the $15,000 Children's Book Award for The Duck and the Darklings.
Congratulations to these outstanding representatives of Melbourne City of Literature and the creative regions of Victoria.
