Dame Annabelle Rankin Award Recipient for 2022 - Michael Gerard Bauer

At our 2022 Book Week event on Friday August 19th, Michael Gerard Bauer was announced as the Dame Annabelle Rankin Award recipient. He was presented with his plaque and citation by the Governor of Qld, Her Excellency the Honourable Dr Jeannette Young AC PSM and made a stirring and (typically) humourous speech that spoke to the power of storytelling and dreaming.

We were fortunate that there were five previous winners on hand to support and congratulate Michael on this derserving accolade.

His citation and acceptance speech can be viewed at the DAR page on the website.
