Sue Lawson non-fiction books

Author Sue Lawson has always had a passion for history, particularly the true history of Australia’s First Nations People.

In a break away from her focus on young adult fiction, Sue Lawson’s first non-fiction work, Protest in Australia, explores how protests helped shape the nation we live in today. Published by Black Dog Books and part of the award-winning Our Stories series for middle readers, Protest in Australia reinvigorated Sue Lawson’s interest in history and marked a new chapter in her writing.

Sue also collaborates with other writers on non-fiction projects.

Nganga – Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Words and Phrases, written in collaboration with Boonwurrung Elder, Aunty Fay Muir was published by Black Dog Books, an imprint of Walker Books.

Sue has a number of non-fiction works on the go with Aunty Fay, and with other talented and emerging writers.

“In Protest in Australia, Lawson turns to non-fiction in a highly informative and thoughtfully illustrated picture book for middle and upper primary school students.”
