The Book Thief Wins Another Award

Just to highlight how lucky we were to have local author Markus Zusak speak at Sutherland Library recently his novel, The Book Thief, has just won another award - the 2007 South African Boeke Prize.

This book had a fascinating genesis in the stories of his parents, which Markus kindly shared with an eager audience. If you weren't there on the night you can still hear what Markus had to say. We recorded the talk and it is now available on the web or you can borrow a copy on DVD.

If you were there we'd love to hear what you thought of the talk. You may even like to suggest someone for a future author talk. Leave a comment and share your views.
