The Y Water Discovery Centre is excited to be hosting two events during August that highlight the importance and joy of reading and literature.

Since 1945, when the Australian Children’s Book Council was formed, awards have been given annually to the best books published in Australia for children.

With the imminent announcement of the 2019 Award winners, on Friday 16th August, and Australian Children’s Book Week to follow on, the Centre is pleased to highlight its excellent collection of quality children’s literature. 

Why not pop in, over the next week or two, for some early Christmas shopping and discover many excellent Australian children’s stories, both classics and recently published titles

Then, on Wednesday 28th August, the Centre is delighted to be hosting a book launch by one of the volunteer staff – Hendrik Dierich. Hendrik has written a book of poems and songs, entitled Dark Spectrum that showcases his talents and covers a wide range of topics and styles. 

He is very pleased and excited to be launching his first professional literary work at the Y Water Discovery Centre and invites anyone who is interested in poetry or literature to attend the official launch – Wednesday 28thAugust at 3pm – and then to enjoy a reading of some of his work.
