Presented by the Australian Publishers Association, partnering with the Australian Booksellers Association.

Margaret Hamilton (Australian)

Margaret Hamilton has many years’ experience in children’s books — as a children’s librarian, bookseller, publisher and as a parent. In 1987 she left her position as director at Hodder & Stoughton Australia to begin Margaret Hamilton Books with her husband, Max. The company achieved considerable success and won many awards before becoming a division of Scholastic Australia in 1996. Margaret’s passion for picture books and the world of Australian illustrators has led her to open Pinerolo, the children’s book cottage in Blackheath.
