ABIA Hall of Fame

Di Morrissey was inducted into the ABIA Hall of Fame at a ceremony on 25 May in Sydney.

Morrissey was presented with the Lloyd O’Neil Award for service to the Australian book industry. Morrissey is the author of 24 novels and three children’s books, selling more than three million copies in her 25-year career.

Other authors who have received the Lloyd O’Neil award include Peter Carey, John Marsden, Margaret Fulton and Bryce Courtenay. Author Tom Keneally, who received the award in 1995, presented the award to Morrissey.

‘Di Morrissey, an old neighbour of mine, has not only distinguished herself through writing novels loved by hundreds of thousands of Australians but—let us not forget—made possible the publication of many books that may not have otherwise have appeared without her contribution to the Australian book industry,’ said Keneally.
