Libby Hathorn

Libby Hathorn is an award-winning author and poet of more than fifty books for children, young adults, and adult readers. Translated into several languages and adapted for both stage and screen, her work has won honours in Australia, the United States, Great Britain and Holland. In 2014 she won The Alice Award, a national award given to 'a woman who has made a distinguished and long term contribution to Australian literature.'

Her first young adult novel THUNDERWITH has enjoyed over twenty-five years in continuous print and was made into a Hallmark Hall of Fame movie. Two of Libby's picture books, GRANDMA'S SHOES and SKY SASH SO BLUE, have been performed as operas, with a third on the way.

Libby is a keen educator who has lectured part-time at Sydney University and is devoted to being an ambassador for poetry anywhere and everywhere. In 2012 she was a National Ambassador for Reading and travelled to many country towns to talk about Australian literature.
