In conversation with Andrew McDonald
Anthony’s book Into White Silence has been shortlisted for the CBCA Book of the Year for Older Readers and we’ll be chatting about the process the book went through from, well, here to there, as the event title says.
It should be a fun conversation. Anthony’s book is – I think – an excellent read that focuses on an anonymous author’s quest to unravel the mystery of William Downes who joined an expedition to the Antarctic in 1920 and never returned.
