Book Fair Australia is the first multi-genre book fair in Sydney that puts Australian authors, shops and talent first.
The book fair will take place on 26 & 27 November, 2022, at Sydney Showground, Sydney Olympic Park. The event will feature independent and traditional authors and publishers, workshops, children’s activities, panels, cosplay, Dungeon & Dragons games, and raffles.
“This event is the first of its kind. We want Aussie authors on centre stage, especially since they rarely get the spotlight in big book festivals, ” said Ivana L. Truglio, the founder and CEO of Book Fair Australia.
“We hope people come and discover a new favourite author and celebrate the beauty of Australian literature.”
Events to look forward to at Book Fair Australia include:
- Daily cosplay parade (children and adults)
- Writing workshops
- Children’s face painting
- Storytelling panels
- Daily book raffles and giveaways
- Dungeons & Dragons games hosted by Awakened Fables
Proceeds from the raffles sold at Book Fair Australia will be donated to World Literacy Foundation, which supports Indigenous literacy projects in Cairns.
When: 26th – 27th November 2022, 10AM – 6PM
About Book Fair Australia
After years of attending conventions and exhibitions that put book fans last, we conceived of a celebration of reading that promotes both traditional writers and self-published authors and focuses on our love of books. We want to present a book festival that appeals to all, drawing in readers and authors from across Australia to discuss everything from new releases to cherished classics and bring the fun back into a timeless hobby. Beginning with establishing the fair in Sydney, we intend to bring the event to other cities within the first five years of operation.
