A unique celebration of West Australian literature

For lovers of books and unique stories in WA, there is a whole week of celebrations to look forward to!

'Love to Read Local Week' is a state-wide celebration of Western Australia's many wonderful writers and illustrators and the books they create. If you love reading great stories, there is simply no better place to live and no bigger week than this.

Now in its third year, Love to Read Local Week 2022 will take place from 3-12 June and there are lots of terrific ways you can be part of the wordy buzz.

What's on for Love to Read Local Week 2022 …

It's a week jam-packed with bookish inspiration and new experiences – be sure to check out the website for full details. Why not …

Meet an author - Writing WA with the support of the Copyright Agency Cultural Fund will be enabling a series of author talks in book clubs and venues throughout the state. Find details here.
