Our biggest congratulations to the fabulous Annabel Crabb and Wendy Sharpe. Their wonderful cookbook Special Guest has been included in the Australian Book Industry Awards 2019 longlist for Illustrated Book of the Year!
Titles on the longlist have been voted for by the ABIA Academy, a group of more than 250 publishers, booksellers, agents, media and industry representatives.
The ABIAs showcase the collaborative effort of publishers, editors, illustrators, marketers, designers, and authors in bringing quality books to Australian and international markets.
A shortlist will be released on Thursday April 11, with the winners announced at the publishing industry's night of nights on Thursday 2 May. The red carpet event will be held at Sydney's International Convention Centre and hosted by writer, musician and radio broadcaster, Casey Bennetto.
Congratulations and good luck Annabel and Wendy!
