Sonya Hartnett calls Ursula Dubosarsky ‘the most graceful, most original writer for young people in Australia – probably the world’. She’s won and been nominated for countless major awards, including the Astrid Lindgren Award.

Join this treasured Australian writer, as she talks about her new book The Blue Cat, set in 1942 Sydney, amidst the threat of war and the arrival of European refugees. This beautiful, haunting book tells the story of a boy who can’t – or won’t – speak about his past in war-torn Europe, and his friendship with a young Australian girl.
