High Road to Reading

High Road to Reading brings authors to public libraries across regional Victoria for readings, talks and workshops. Whatever your reading passion, you'll find an event to entertain and inspire you.

The program features a series of author tours from February to May. This year, you have the opportunity to hear from fantastic writers such as Liz Porter, Rosalie Ham, Matt Zurbo, Rachel Treasure, Steve Bell and Lia Hills.

High Road to Reading is part of the Statewide Public Library Development Projects for Adult literacy delivered by State Library Victoria in partnership with Public Libraries Victoria Network. This adult reader development program is underpinned by the Reading and Literacy Strategic Framework.

In 2017, 18 library services across regional Victoria will take part in the program. Contact your local participating library service for more information or to make a booking.
