Earlier this week, the organisers of the #AuthorsForFireys campaign—which saw more than 500 authors, illustrators and publishing professionals auction items for bushfire relief—confirmed it had raised nearly $500,000 in donations from over 1000 auction items. Meanwhile, the Children’s Book Council of Australia and children’s bookseller The Little Bookroom are also organising book drives for children affected by the bushfire crisis.
