National Year of Reading 2012 - Semester Two

There is still time to get involved in the National Year of Reading 2012. Join our online book club, and be part of an Australia-wide book reading experience and explore different aspects of what it means to be Australian.

During second semester we are reading:

  • Jasper Jones - a riveting tale about a bookish adolescent who is drawn into events surrounding the grim disappearance of a local girl. Available from the Library in print, as an e-book and a CD recording
  • Wanting - based on real historical figures under the central theme of 'wanting'. The novel is set in both nineteenth century Tasmania and Britain. Available from the Library in print.
  • The idea of home – a series of related essays of an autobiographical nature, spanning the author’s life from childhood to maturity. Available from the Library in print.
