The Kibble Awards
It was a huge thrill to win one of the Kibble Awards – the Dobbie Award for Best Debut. Here I am being presented with the award by Emeritus Professor Elizabeth Webby AM, who held the Chair of Australian Literature at Sydney University from 1990 to 2007, and is currently the Editor of Humanities Australia, the journal of the Australia Academy of the Humanities. (Also, a really interesting and lovely person.) I’m sorry that I don’t remember the name of the man who was also presenting – one of the lovely people from Perpetual Trustees, which administer the award.
