Each year across Australia, the Children’s Book Council of Australia brings children and books together in a celebration of Australian literature.
The 2017 Book Week theme is Escape to Everywhere, and Subiaco Library is again putting on a jam-packed program for local school children. Featuring prominent local authors and storytellers, children will be able to escape at the library with sessions aimed at highlighting the importance of books and reading. The program includes activities, readings, musical storytelling and sing-a-longs.
This year's special guests include Australian authors Norman Jorgensen, Glenn Swift, Wendy Binks, Monique Mulligan and Veronica Rooke as well as musical troupe Kaleidoscope Ensemble.
Book week will be celebrated from 19 to 26 August.
