Hi friends! Wow, we can’t believe that it’s already halfway through the year! We’ve had an amazing first half of 2017, and we can’t wait to continue to hold great events and meet even greater bookish people in the remaining months of the year! We have some exciting things planned, and we can’t wait to share them with you soon.
The first event we have coming up this month is our Twitter chat – #YARoomChat! We hold this online chat every month and discuss about some of the themes and questions raised by out Book of the Month, which is Wreck. We absolutely loved reading this #LoveOzYA novel, and we can’t wait to talk all about it with you!
Following our Twitter chat, Thursday of that same week we have one of the most anticipated bookish events of this year – #YAFanFest17, hosted by Allen & Unwin! Last year, only people in Sydney were lucky enough to attend, but this year we’ve joined forces with Allen & Unwin to make the first ever Melbourne event for the #YAFanFest possible! We’re lucky enough to be joined by the lovely Lili Wilkinson, where she’ll be talking about everything bookish, answering questions, and having a live-stream with the Sydney event! There might even be some bookish games and awesome prizes. Tickets are limited, so don’t miss out! We hope to see you there.
And then, on the last Sunday of the month, we have our Wreck Book Meet at Dymocks! We can’t wait to talk all about this awesome #LoveOzYA novel, so if you love YA, come along! We’re always thrilled to see some new faces. We meet in the upstairs section of the cafe at Dymocks, so you can treat yourself to a hot drink or some cake! It’s bound to be a lovely afternoon surrounded by bookish people.
Well, it looks like this month is going to be another busy one! We’re looking forward to all of our upcoming events and we hope to see you there. Please don’t hesitate to get in touch if you have any questions!
Next up we have the amazing Will Kostakis to talk all about his short story in the #LoveOzYA Anthology and his favourite #LoveOzYA books! His story was one of our absolute favourites (though picking a favourite story from the collection would be like choosing our favourite child), and it was so lovely to meet him at our Book Meet a few days ago!
Next up we have the lovely Gabrielle Tozer to answer all of our questions about the #LoveOzYA Anthology and her story in it! We really enjoyed reading her contribution, and so we were super excited to learn more about how she got into writing and what some of her favourite Aussie novels were growing up!
We’re thrilled to share our next #LoveOzYA interview with you, this time with Michael Pryor, another amazingly talented author who contributed to the #LoveOzYA Anthology! His story was really intriguing and thought-provoking, and it was great to learn more about Michael in this interview.
Next in our series of very exciting #LoveOzYA interviews we have the lovely Ellie Marney! We absolutely adored her story in the #LoveOzYA Anthology, and we loved learning more about her and her writing experiences in this interview. Enjoy!
Hi friends! Today we have a very exciting interview to share with you, which will actually be the first in a series of interviews! As you know, the #LoveOzYA Anthology was voted as our June Book of the Month, and we couldn’t have been more thrilled. This month is a celebration of all things #LoveOzYA, and between recommending our favourite Aussie YA novels on our various social media channels all month and being joined by real live authors at our upcoming Book Meet, we thought it would be great to get to know some of the amazingly talented authors who contributed to the #LoveOzYA Anthology! First up, we have the lovely Danielle Binks – who wrote a short story and edited the anthology. How cool is that?!
