2020 ABIA Awards Shortlist Announced

The Australian Publishers Association has announced the shortlist for the 2020 Australian Book Industry Awards (ABIA Awards). From this shortlist, the category winners and the overall ‘Book of the Year’ winner will be announced at the premier event on the Australian book industry calendar. This year, due to COVID-19, the ABIA Awards will stream LIVE on YouTube on Wednesday 13th May at 4:00pm, which means readers everywhere can attend this year’s awards, which promises to be a star-studded broadcast featuring among others Judy Nunn, Leigh Sales, Anita Heiss, Julia Gillard, Kate Ritchie, Richard Harris and Michael O’Loughlin.

Of special note today is the announcement of the two Hall of Fame Awards, Helen Garner as the recipient of the Lloyd O’Neil Award for outstanding contribution to the industry and Erica Wagner as the recipient of the Pixie O’Harris Award for consistent contribution to Children’s Literature. Both have contributed a lifetime of outstanding work to the industry.

Today’s announcement of the shortlisted books is an exciting one for the Better Reading team as we see so many of the books we’ve read and loved on the list, and so many of Australia’s favourite authors having their work recognised.
