High Road to Reading brings authors to public libraries across Victoria for readings, talks and workshops. Whatever your reading passion, you'll find an event to entertain and inspire you.
The program runs for three years from 2012 to 2014, with author tours taking place in April, May and June each year. All Victorian public library services have the opportunity to participate.
In 2012 and 2013, public libraries hosted 143 High Road to Reading events across the state, attended by almost 7,000 enthusiastic adults, teens and children. Andy Griffiths, Melina Marchetta, Andrew Rule, Toni Jordan, Shane Maloney, Sally Rippin, Barry Heard, John Marsden, Benjamin Law, Liz Porter, Jane Clifton, Michael Robotham and Terry Denton are just a few of the authors who have been part of High Road to Reading.
The next round of High Road to Reading will run from April to June 2014.
High Road to Reading is funded by the State Library of Victoria and delivered in partnership with Public Libraries Victoria Network. The program is supported by a grant from Copyright Agency Limited.
