This is Banjo Paterson Day 7 - win a copy of the book!

Wednesday, 1 February 2017


It's launch day! And to celebrate, here's your chance to win a copy of This is Banjo Paterson! We have two copies to give away.

To win, all you have to do is leave a comment below (or email it to me here if you can't access Blogger), telling me which historical Australian you'd like to see a children's book on.

My two favourite suggestions will win a copy of the book. If you miss out, you can snaffle a copy of the book right here, or come along to my book launch at the National Library on 12 February in Canberra--details below.

COMP DETAILS: The comp runs from today until Tuesday 7 February 2017 at 9pm Australian Eastern Daylight Savings Time. The winners will be announced the next day, right here on this blog. The comp is open to anyone, world-wide, so long as the book can be sent to an Australian address. This is a game of skill, not chance. The winning decision is final.



Join Tania on Periscope on Friday 17 February at 1pm AEDST, where 
she will be chatting about the book live from the National Library, 
and showing various priceless Banjo Paterson items, 
along with original artwork by Christina Booth!

And for those in or near Canberra ...

I'd really like A book about Nan Chauncey. From what I've seen during the week your book of Banjo is beautiful.

I think it's time for a lady hero. Nancy Bird first female commercial pilot would be interesting. This website is a great resource for women heroes http://pioneerwomen.com.au/

Dame Nellie Melba would be an interesting hero as well.

Who is Mary Reibey? And why does her face grace our Australian twenty dollar note? Was she one of Australia's leading entrepreneurs?

How about the story of friends Fanny Durack and Mina Wylie, Australia's first female Olympian swimmers?

SAINT MARY MacKILLOP
Or Fred hollows

How about George Bornemissza who introduced the dung beetle to Australia; this led to the development of sustainable agriculture and greatly reduced the number of bush flies?
Or any of the following fantastic and not so well known women ….Fanny Cochrane Smith, Prof Elizabeth Blackburn, Elizabeth Kenny, Marie Byles, Florence McKenzie (Mrs Mac) , Louise Mack, Jessie Street, Deborah Wardley, Ruby Payne-Scott.
