August: Australia Story Country: Home

The theme for Book Week 2016 is Australia: Story Country

Our stories come from all over: from our own indigenous people, from migrants and refugees who have come to live here, from books, movies and orally transmitted stories.

The theme Australia! Story Country explores some of these stories. Our Book Week will run from Monday 22 August to Thursday 25 August.
