In 2007 Jackie Kerin received the Spirit of Woodford Original Stories and Yarns Award for her tellable tale, Edith's Lyrebird. This story went on to become the text for a short film and later on, Jackie developed a more literary version for publication as a picture book. Well the book is here and you are all invited to the launch!
