This is our third festival, and this year we have added a new
name and focused on having high quality, high profile authors and
speakers come to Goulburn for the festival. The Goulburn
Mulwaree Library has been able to attract authors such as Markus
Zusak, Peter FitzSimons, Jane Caro, Sulari Gentill and Richard
Come along and enjoy a number of interesting workshops for
writing, illustrating and publishing and a fun mystery magic show
for the kids. Make the most of the day and enjoy all
the speakers and other activities the Library team has organised,
including our literary dinner at the Astor hotel. Come
along and enjoy a lovely 3 course meal and some wonderful
conversation with a number of the presenting authors.
We are always looking for opportunities to support our local
writers and researchers, and at our event this year we are
holding a local author showcase where authors will have the
opportunity to speak about themselves and their books.
This year we have also been working on a fantastic project for
our young writers; the Mighty Playwrights project. With
assistance from the Australian Government, 11 young primary
school students have been working with mentors for the last 6
months to develop some amazing short play scripts. The
plays will come to life on stage at our gala Mighty Playwrights
performance at the Lieder Theatre on Sunday 29 March.
Entry into the BookFest event is free!
