The 2021 Davitt Awards Winner

We are delighted to announce that A Clue for Clara by Lian Tanner has been awarded the Best Children's Crime Novel in the 2021 Davitt Awards!

Lian Tanner said: “A huge thank you to the judges for picking my little chook out of the shortlist and turning her into a prize winner. I love crime novels and mysteries, and have been reading them all my life, but this is the first one I set out to write – and, for that, I owe an enormous debt of gratitude to my late chooks, Dolly, Floss, and Clara, who were the inspiration for this book, as well as its primary research subjects.”
