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.
