CBCA Book Week

CBCA Book Week 2019
Theme: Reading is My Secret Power

Each year across Australia, the CBCA brings children and books together celebrating CBCA Book Week. During this time schools, libraries, booksellers, authors, illustrators and children celebrate Australian children's literature and you will often see children's book character parades and talented librarians creating amazing displays. 

The CBCA Book of the Year Awards are announced each year on the third Friday in August. CBCA Book Week commences the following day.
