The most amazing whole town bookshop in the world returns with the Clunes Booktown Festival on Saturday 6th and Sunday 7th May.
Join us for a weekend of book browsing, author talks and an immersive new program for school students.
Workshops for students by students and the creation of a Magazine in a Weekend will give teenagers a host of activities to be part of, while all ages can enjoy talks by headline authors Hannah Kent (Burial Rites), Kate Grenville (The Lieutenant) and A.S. Patric (Black Rock, White City).
Other draw-cards are live music, street entertainment and the kids festival area.
There are several themes that flow throughout this year’s talks and activities. The first is women’s stories; the second theme is the idea of belonging in Australia; and the third is the sense of connection to land and place.
Clunes Booktown Festival is all about celebrating the book and the great conversations and big ideas that come from them. Join the conversation on May 6th and 7th in Clunes and by using #clunesbooktown.
As usual, we strongly advise all guests intending to stay overnight to book their accommodation early. We’ve made it easy with a list of suggested accommodation options.
