RecommendedReads

Each month, we will publish four recommended reads on our website. Three of the recommendations will be recent releases by a local Tasmanian writer, an Australian writer and a children’s writer. The fourth will be a Tasmanian classic that you may not have got round to reading, or that you may not have read for a long time. If you can’t get your hands on a copy of the recommended Tasmanian classic, please feel free to pop into the library at the Tasmanian Writers’ Centre and borrow a copy from us.

We would love to hear your thoughts on our picks! Drop our communications manager, Josie Chapman an email on [email protected] or share your thoughts with us on Twitter or Facebook.
