Melbourne Writers Festival 2016

Melbourne Writers Festival (MWF) is for everyone who reads.

MWF is Melbourne’s annual, two-week celebration for writers, readers and thinkers. Each year in August they present the talent and ideas of hundreds of writers from Australia and around the world, through a vibrant program of storytelling, conversation and discussion, intellectual debate, educational programs, live performance, music and art events.

The Festival includes events for people of all ages and more than a third of the program is free. Our highly regarded Schools’ Program is Australia’s biggest literary festival for students.

World Book Day

This is the 19th year there’s been a World Book Day, and on 3rd March 2016 children of all ages will come together to appreciate reading. Very loudly and very happily. The main aim of World Book Day in the UK and Ireland is to encourage children to explore the pleasures of books and reading by providing them with the opportunity to have a book of their own. That’s why we will be sending schools (including those nurseries and secondary schools that have specially registered to participate), packs of Book Tokens and age-ranged World Book Day Resource Packs (age-ranged into Nursery/Pre-School, Primary and Secondary) full of ideas and activities, display material and more information about how to get involved in World Book Day.

Young Reader’s Day

When: Second Tuesday of November

Young Readers Day remind you that reading opens up a lifetime of knowledge, information, success, and happiness.

According to the creators of this day, it is “… a special day to recognize the joys and benefits of reading.”

Grade schools around the country take advantage of this day, to promote the importance of reading. Use today to help and encourage our youth to learn to read, and open the door to knowledge, information, success, and happiness.

Happy Young Readers Day to readers young, and not so young.


Origin of Young Readers Day:

Young Readers Day was co-founded in 1989 by Pizza Hut and the Center for the Book in the Library of Congress.

While this is referred to by some as a “National” day, we did not find any presidential proclamation or act of congress.
