There’s something to do for everyone this week!

Whether you’re out and about or laying low at home, there are plenty of ways to enjoy the vibe of ‘Love to Read Local Week 2022‘.

”This is a truly a week the whole state can enjoy,” Writing WA CEO Sharon Flindell said.

“People of every age, every stage and every budget – even no budget – can find ways to join in this state-wide celebration of writers, illustrators and wonderful stories in WA.

“There are almost 30 author events happening right across the state, many of them free, including such locations as Karratha, Geraldton, Broome and Northam.

“There are both in-person events and online events, so people who might be stuck at home right now should jump onto our ‘Love to Read Local Week‘ website and find events they can attend online.

“People can also follow our social media handles and we’d love to see as many people as possible post an Instagram pic of their favourite WA book with the hashtag #lovetoreadlocal,” Ms Flindell said.

If you’re keen to read a WA book and don’t know where to find one, be sure to check out our reviews page or ask your local bookstore or library for a recommendation. Bookshops like Dymocks Subiaco are really getting into the spirit with ‘Love to Read Local Week’ displays of terrific WA books.

Seesaw Magazine has also posted this terrific collection of tips on how to read local.

And there are still more great ideas here. Maybe this is the week you finally start a book club? Maybe even a Silent Book Club?
