Albert Street Books, an imprint of Allen & Unwin (A&U), is proud to announce Wylah: the Koorie Warrior by Richard Pritchard and Jordan Gould—the first in a middle-grade fantasy adventure series for ages 8-14.
Publishing 31 May 2022, Wylah is an entirely original adventure story that is inspired by First Nations history and grounded in culture. In 2020, Richard Pritchard and Jordan Gould launched a Kickstarter campaign for a special edition of Wylah, and met their $20,000 goal in three days, sparking national media interest. The creators used money from the Kickstarter to do a series of cultural consultations, especially with First Nations women. Their main character, Wylah, is a Peek Whurrong girl from the Maar Nation. She is a funny, smart and relatable young hero.
As we farewell our wonderful sales manager Jamila Khodja we wish her every success in her new path. She’ll be missed by the whole team.
We’re delighted to announce Kate Lloyd’s promotion to sales & marketing manager. Kate is supported by Sophie Mannix, promoted from publishing assistant to sales coordinator, and Julia Kathro in her ongoing position as marketing coordinator.
