Festival of Words

* Festival Hub at Yagan Square *

From Monday 11 to Friday 15 July, the Premier’s Reading Challenge will host a range of free sessions and activities across Yagan Square and the City of Perth.
If you're looking for activities for the whole family these school holidays, the Festival of Words is the answer to the boredom blues.
Be a newsreader. Discover a new story. Meet the author. Drive your friends banana(gram)s. Draw a cartoon. Write a love letter. You can even get famous on the Yagan Square Digital Tower!
Bring the whole family to enjoy the magic, and don’t forget to add all of your reading activities to your challenge bookshelf.
You can also download 3 free ebooks or audiobooks  from over 1 million titles to join in the wonder of the festival at home, thanks to the State Library of Western Australia.
Let reading take you anywhere these school holidays.
