'Gunnedah Hero' has just been 'Commended' in the FAW Christina Stead Award - 2011 National Literary Awards. This is the second award granted to 'Gunnedah Hero' by the National Literary Awards. In the 2007 awards it was 'Highly Commended' in the FAW Jim Hamilton Award.
Let's hope some of the other book awards are just as generous. Fingers crossed.
