Book Fair

Rockingham Writers Centre’s inaugural Book Fair in November last year was a great success. The event showcased 71 titles by 20 authors and presented a program of author talks on contemporary fiction, romance, poetry and memoir, story reading and craft activities for children throughout the weekend. Best selling novelist Anna Jacobs was guest speaker at the official opening and proved popular with the capacity crowd.
