“Where too many books are never enough”… the Mudgee Readers’ Festival is coming up on the 18th and 19th of August, and with a clear focus on what readers want, not writers, it’s a festival that Mudgee locals and visitors will surely get value from.
Over the last couple of years that the Mudgee Readers’ Festival has been held, from all reports there has been terrific support, with plenty of discussion and laughter amongst speakers and their audiences.
People of all ages are encouraged to take up reading as a pastime, even with technology these days you can still read digital novels and immerse yourself in a new world, after all, it is the National Year of Reading!
The presentations, panel discussions and literary lunches will be run by authors, talking to you about the books that you read and with children’s authors as well, there’ll be something to entertain all ages.
Don’t forget to take along all of your old and pre-loved books, as there’ll be a second hand book fair at the Readers’ Festival as well where you can buy and sell books of all kinds.
The official programme for the Mudgee Readers’ Festival will be announced on the 4th of July and you can find it at the Mudgee Readers’ Festival website here after that date. If you’d like to join the conversation about the festival, you can also visit their Facebook Page here.
