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.
