Product Description

Prize-winning and highly commended stories from the Brotherhood of St Laurence Hope Prize

Foreword by the Honourable Quentin Bryce AD CVO

‘Filled with determination and human spirit about people who overcome the odds with courage and strength’ – the Honourable Quentin Bryce AD CVO

‘Powerful perspectives on the world at large from unique and authentic voices’ – Cate Blanchett

‘Stories enrich both the storyteller and the story-reader, bringing new understanding and new perspectives to both.’ – Kate Grenville

Uplifting, poignant, funny and affecting, these stories of resilience, strength and grace will open your eyes and heart to the experiences of so many of our invisible citizens.

Australia is a prosperous country, but there are pockets of disadvantage everywhere. The Hope Prize encourages writing that transcends stereotypes of ‘the poor’, and these ten short stories reflect the tenacity and optimism that people show in the face of poverty and testing times.

Judged by three notable Australians – Quentin Bryce, Cate Blanchett and Kate Grenville – who are passionate about defeating disadvantage in our communities, and who care deeply about encouraging good writing, Hope Shines is a moving collection is a celebration of hope and the enduring power of community.
 
Royalties from the sale of this book will be donated to the Hope Prize.
