National Year of Reading 2012

Murdoch University Library is a registered partner in the National Year of Reading 2012. As a partner the Library is running an online book club to support and promote Australian literature and encourage discussion about the featured titles across the University community.

At the end of 2011, the Australian public was invited to nominate their favourite Australian books and by popular vote, 8 fiction and non-fiction titles were selected because they best articulated the Australian experience.

We have chosen 4 of these titles to be read and discussed during first semester, 2012.
We invite all staff, students and friends to join our book club on Facebook.

Have a good read, share your ideas, learn more about different views of Australian life!
