Miles Franklin celebrated with Google Doodle

You may have noticed that today's Google homepage has an unusual picture on it.  The Google Doodle, Google's way of celebrating and commemorating past events through a new picture (and sometimes a game) on their homepage, has today been changed to celebrate Stella Maria Sarah Miles Franklin's 135th birthday.

Miles Franklin, who is best remembered as the author of 'My Brilliant Career' and through her eponymous literary award.

The scene depicted in the Google Doodle shows Sybylla from 'My Brilliant Career' gazing at her grandmother's house in rural New South Wales.

You can find Miles Franklin's books, letters, and diaries in the Townsville and Cairns Libraries under 820A FRA or by clicking here.
