Congratulations ‘Forgotten Rebels’


Congratulations Clare Wright on winning the Stella Prize for her book  The Forgotten Rebels of Eureka.  You can read my review here.

And well done her, too, for donating $2500 each to the Indigenous Literacy Foundation and her local high school, Northcote High.  This is the second time this week where I’ve read of donations/fundraising going to public schools- the other was an article yesterday about leading chefs contributing to  school cookbooks for local state-run schools.   This is the cultural (as well as financial!) capital that private schools trade on and government schools lack.  Good on them.
