The ASMS will be celebrating Book Week between 20th August and the 26th August this year.
Displays of some of the short-listed books were set up for Open Night Thursday 11th August. On 19th August, the Children’s Book Council of Australia will announce the winners in each of the categories. The theme for this year is Australia: Story Country. In keeping with this theme, but adding a twist, Book Week displays will be set up in both the ASMS and Sturt Library!
Come and see and perhaps consider borrowing some of the books which have been nominated, shortlisted, or won in the various categories. Michael and Merralyn have purchased all of the books shortlisted in the “Book of the Year: Older Reader’s” category and one or more, either nominated or shortlisted, from each of the other categories, which include Book of the Year: Early Childhood, Picture Book of the Year, and the Eve Pownall Award for Information Books.
