Vale Patricia Wrightson

Posted by Lisa Hill on March 25, 2010


Acclaimed children’s author Patricia Wrightson died this week, aged 88.  

The author of the much-loved Nargun and the Stars, An Older Kind of Magic, I Own the Racecourse and many other wonderful books won the CBCA Award four times, as well as the Dromkeen Medal and the Hans Christian Andersen Award for the writing.

Her death is a loss to all lovers of Australian children’s literature.  There is a tribute to her writing here and Matilda has links to others.
