The Summer Read is back and gives Victorians the chance to discover new, local books.
Summer is the perfect time to pick up a book and read. It doesn’t matter if you’re at home or on holidays, you can take a book anywhere and enjoy some quality storytelling. After the often hectic pace of life throughout the year, The Summer Read encourages us all to relax and recharge – and the best way to do that is with a good book.
Choose from a list of ten great books, written by Victorian authors or telling Victorian stories. There’s crime, popular and literary fiction, non-fiction and memoir – something for everyone!
- Driving Under the Influence, Jenna Martin
- Tree Palace, Craig Sherborne
- Demons, Wayne Macauley
- Warning: The Story of Cyclone Tracy, Sophie Cunningham
- An American in Oz, Sara James
