Author Spotlight – Libby Hathorn

Elizabeth Helen “Libby ” Hathorn is an Australian award-winning author and poet of more than eighty books for children and young people. Born in Newcastle, New South Wales, Libby attended Balmain Teachers College and worked as a teacher librarian from 1965 to 1981.

With a focus on highlighting the rights of children and the importance of nurturing them, Libby’s works often feature diverse characters from many walks of life, including a homeless child in Way Home, and a hearing-impaired child in What Rosie Hears.

Libby’s latest book, The Best Cat, the Est Cat, invites young readers to explore the Archives at the State Library of NSW to find the biggest, smallest, strangest, rarest, and even pooiest(!) artefacts from Australia’s history.
