The 2015 Summer Read has just kicked off in public libraries across Victoria. Focusing on books set in Victoria, about Victorians or by Victorian authors, the Summer Read invites you to borrow one of the ten recommended summertime reads from a participating public library.

This annual campaign is a great initiative that puts the spotlight on our incredible local writers and stories, such as award-winning author Sonya Harnett’s tumultuous Australian drama Golden boys, or Sophie Cunningham’s Warning: the story of Cyclone Tracy, which reflects upon the iconic natural disaster on this its 40th anniversary.

To enter the Summer Read, head to a local participating library and ask for one of the titles. Participants can win some great bookish prizes by entering the draw here.
