Lit News To Note 05.28.2011

The shortlist for Australia's 2011 Prime Minister's Literary Awards have been announced.  Here's the final five in the young adult category:
  • Good Oil, Laura Buzo (my review is coming soon)
  • Graffiti Moon, Cath Crowley
  • The Three Loves of Persimmon, Cassandra Golds
  • About a Girl, Joanne Horniman
  • The Piper's Son, Melina Marchetta
From The Hollywood Reporter: "CBS Films Taps Writers to Adapt 'Legend' Novel".
