Australian non-fiction books for young adults
Author Sue Lawson has a great love of Australia and its rich history, particularly the history of its Aboriginal people. In a break away from her focus on young adult fiction, Sue Lawson’s first non-fiction work Protest in Australia showed how protests helped shaped the Australia we live in today.
Published by Black Dog Books and part of the the award-winning Our Stories series for middle readers Protest in Australia reinvigorated Sue Lawson’s interest in Australia and marked a new chapter in her writing, following on from her successful young adult fiction, junior fiction and picture books.
Protest in Australia investigates how demonstrations have shaped our nation. Protest in Australia is part of Walker Books’ award-winning Our Stories series and suited for school students in the upper primary and mid-secondary years.
